An animated version of five of Ovid's Roman versions of Greek myths, this film gives the stories of Actaeon, Orpheus and Eurydice, Herse and Aglauros, Perseus and Medusa, and Phaethon. Originally planned as a modern Fantasia in 70mm, Metamorphoses featured original pop music "starring musical performances by Joan Baez, Mick Jagger & The Rolling Stones, [and] The Pointer Sisters." The music and images, however, rarely matched, and the dialogue-free action was simply mystifying to audiences. Matters were not helped by the literary device of having the hero in each of the stories played by the same character, misleading some into thinking the anthology was one long story with a plot too incoherent to follow. The Winds of Change version followed in 1979, with music by a single composer and a sardonic narration by Peter Ustinov explaining the adventures of "Wondermaker" as he wanders through the five tales and takes the leading role in each. A product of Sanrio's short-lived Hollywood animation studio, which made the similarly unsuccessful Mouse and His Child.
