One of the first memorable moments of the year - viewing this on a home retail Super 8 print at my volunteer work. Even if the print will likely be sent back to the person who donated it, such a small viewing experience is going to be special.
Still feels fresh and new all these years later, using every element of the frame musically and to add to the mood and tone. The shot going through a skeleton's mouth all the way through its body is one of the first moments I can remember being awestruck by animation, achieving fluidity and heightened realism. Maybe this is the best thing Walt Disney ever created?
this kind of sorta rules. first of all, my favorite walt disney films are older. second of all, THERE'S A SKELETON DANCE SEQUENCE!. and finally, bones and a cats' tail are being used as instruments. why didn't i think of that first?
