just a snippet,...
3 July 2006 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is just about impossible to rate--a fragment is all that exists of the original short--no titles, no credits and just one scene about a minute and a half long! However, it really makes you wonder and wish you could see the whole thing, as the animation, for 1921, is exceptional. Despite having no sound, the quality of the animation is actually better than many of the Fleischer cartoons of the 30s. In particular, the backgrounds are so masterfully drawn.

So why would a review this snippet? Well, considering how important Gertie is to the history of animation, I think it's imperative that we remember and celebrate the cartoons that eventually led to Disney, Warner Brothers and their contemporaries. I guess from the review it would not surprise you to find out I am a history teacher!
