Another very well known short film, released 06/20/1936 and one production number up from Thru the Mirror, Moving Day was directed by Ben Sharpsteen and animated by Paul Allen, Al Eugster, Marvin Woodward, Woolie Reitherman, Art Babbitt and Fred Spencer, with a duck scene by Don Towsley and two effects scenes by Cy Young. This second draft is dated 2/4/1936.
Ol' Peg Leg Pete's first appearance in color, and with two legs, too!
Gee, I've been busy... Not only with work, but also performing songs from Russell Schroeder's great book Disney's Lost Chords
at the NFFC convention in Anaheim and in the Hyperion Bungalow on the Disney Studio lot! What great songs these are, and what fun to perform these on the property where they were written some 60 years ago...
Before that, after Annecy, I visited Washington DC, and saw the Once Upon a Time Walt Disney exhibition in Montreal, which was GREAT. Though I often find the European premise far-fetched, the art was astounding! Caught a few shows in New York, incl. a MUCH improved Mary Poppins (I saw the very first performance in Bristol and one in London, too) and my favorite, The Drowsy Chaperone - the most fun I ever had (though I liked the original "Man in Chair", who may be back when the touring company gets to L.A., much better). When it is near you, go and see it!
Anyway, in case you were wondering why I have not posted much, well, sorry, I have been busy!
