  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

    3-4. A groundbreaking short that derives its humor from interactions between author and subject. It gets 0/10 for historical accuracy, though. ;D

  2. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

    Classic animation from 1914 in which every single frame was hand drawn....over 10, 000 frames.

  4. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

    An important and also - using the narrative frame as starting point - a kind of didactic part of film history. The anmiation is still marvelous today.

  5. Log Lady's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

    I'm getting a headache just thinking about the amount of work McCay had to do. Painstakingly drawing by hand on thousands of rice papers was worth it in the end, though, because the result is a lovely character animation that surely must have affected Disney somehow. I also loved how McCay incorporated himself to the film, making the whole experience interactive to the audience.

  6. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Gertie the Dinosaur

    Cute animated short from Winsor that connects with the audience easily.
