A nice but short overview of the Silly Symphonies.

I have no idea why this film currently has such an incredibly low
rating on IMDB--3.2. This would seem to indicate that this short film
is terrible--which is certainly not the case. This DVD extra was
included with "Walt Disney Treasures: More Silly Symphonies" and gives
a very general overview of the series--the history, the art, how it
influenced later films, etc.. None of the information on "Silly
Symphonies Rediscovered" came as a huge surprise, but to folks who buy
the set, it's a wonderful overview and would perhaps best be seen
before you watch the accompanying shorts. It is informative,
well-constructed and worth your time. My only quibble is the very short
length. At under 15 minutes, it just felt like too little--and I would
have loved a more in-depth discussion on the shorts in the series.
