The Men that made Disney
27 March 2000 | by (miami,florida) – See all my reviews

This was the documentary on Oliver Johnston and Franklin Thomas, the two men responsible for what Walt Disney is remembered today- Character Animation. In this film we find out how these two men became friends and how through that friendship raised character animation to the standard it is done today in the movies.

The good-The documentary goes through the duo's history. It shows some of the classical figure drawings as well as rough pencil drawings of famous Disney characters-Bambi and Pinnocchio included.

The bad-John Culhane,what a bloated, pompous asshole. I love the work that Frank ad Ollie did in the Disney movies but the way this guys interpreted it was almost to a Godlike degree. I cant stand this guy on film. Supposedly Milt Kahl, one of Disneys best animators, designed the character of Mr.snoops in The Rescuers with this windbag in mind.

Rent this film to se who is actually responsible for Uncle Walt's fame-and I don't mean Mickey Mouse. Then afterwards, read The Illusion of Life. The quintissential book on Disney Animation written by the same to men who the documentary is based on.
