The Forty Yawns
2 May 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Ub Iwerks produced and directed this color cartoon soon before Pat Powers pulled the funding for his studio. Iwerks continued to work independently for a few more years on short contracts, eking out the fiction releases with commercial work. Unfortunately, despite some good basic ideas, nothing seemed to quite come together. After half a dozen years he returned to Disney, where he spent the rest of his career working out technical issues in multi-planing. He won two Oscars for that work.

I think that turned out well. Despite his technical excellence, his cartoons never seemed to do much of anything. There isn't anything wrong with this color version of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, although I don't like the character design. On the other hand, the jokes are not great and who needs another mediocre version of this oft-told tale? Even talented collaborators like animators Seamus Culhane, Al Eugster and Grim Natwick can't do much -- although I suspect all those adenoidal characters were designed by Natwick.
