    Winsor McCay was the first master of animation and one of its greatest and most influential artists. His films -- joyous, hilarious and beautiful -- continue to delight and astonish audiences today. Milestone's Winsor McCay: The Master Edition features every surviving film by this cinema pioneer with lovely piano scores by famed composer Gabriel Thibaudeau. McCay created a pantheon of beloved characters including Little Nemo, the intrepid traveler in Slumberland; Nemo's friends Flip and Impie; and the enchanting Gertie the Dinosaur. Highlights in this collection include the stunning hand-colored Little Nemo (1911, selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress) mastered from the only known 35mm print in existence, and Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) which was recently restored by the National Archives of Canada using four 35mm nitrate prints from the Cinémathèque's collection. Other cinematic treasures include the funny and bizarre How A Mosquito Operates (1912), the deeply moving The Sinking Of The Lusitania (1918), the existing fragments of the lyrical The Centaurs (1918-21), the charming Gertie On Tour (1918-21) and Flip's Circus (1918-21). McCay's final three works, all from his surreal and bizarre "Scenes from a Rarebit Fiend" series are featured: Bug Vaudeville (1921), The Pet (1921) and The Flying House (1921).
