The North Wind and the Sun: A Fable by Aesop

Once the North Wind and the Sun were arguing about who was the stronger. They saw a man walking below. “I am the strongest,” said the North Wind fiercely. “Only I can get the coat off that man.” But the sun, answering with a smile said, “We shall see who will make him take it off…”

The North Wind and the Sun (1972), a classic Aesop’s fable directed by Les Drew & Rhoda Leyer for the National Film Board of Canada.
