À ta Santé, Jacques

Tribute to Jacques Normand on the series Les Beaux Dimanches
Broadcast by Radio-Canada on March 18, 1973
Running time: 90 minutes
Producer: Richard Martin

The tribute included a roster of celebrities, performers and politicians who had been associated with Jacques Normand throughout his career.

For the occasion, Frédéric Back created an animated sequence illustrating the song Hommage aux mères canadiennes, which Jacques Normand had recorded on a 78 rpm in the early 1940s under the name of Raymond Boisseau. The animation reflects both Normand's mischievous spirit and Back's antimilitarism.
