Description:

"Love in String is a most ambitious animated attempt to tell a yarn with yarn. Boy yarn meets girl yarn and together they spin a yarn of love on a tropical isle. Some coconuts later the story comes to a close with a thunderous climax. A sound track synchronized with the animated twine contributes a great deal to the effectiveness of the production. This picture also won the MPD Humorous Film Award" PSA Journal, Sept. 1965, 50.
