I've searched by country of origin + year, how can I drill down further?

I'm looking for a Japanese animated film I saw as a child in around 1974/1975. I have isolated a list of Japanese films from 1974, but it's around 159 films. Is it possible to narrow it down even further to animated films or children's films?

There are two things...

Adding animation nets 7 titles (feature length films) http://www.imdb.com/search/title?countries=jp&genres=animation&release_date=1974,1974&ti... using "Advanced Title Search" (change the "all" at the search box to "advanced search" then choose "Advanced Title Search." You can also include/exclude other criteria there.

If you cannot locate it, you should ask on the message boards.  I Need To Know board is full of film buffs who will probably know (or know how to search it) if you describe it clearly.  Also, make a good post title, like "Japanese animated feature from 74/75" or something helpful and noticeable, then when solved, edit your title to include "**Solved**"  There is also an Anime and Animation board which might have folks who know it.

Good luck!

Wow, thank you so much! I will try both options. Problem is, I am relying on a memory from when I was around five, of a film I scarcely understood, never talked to anyone about and remember only one scene from. But that film/scene had an awe-some effect on me and filled me with an overwhelming fascination. I will try my best to describe it in INTK.
