Every once in a while you do something you like and the vehicle it is in bombs mightily. Then again you do something you hated and it gets adored . It's that twisty set of values called "audience taste ". Fucile and I went to the Disney archives years ago and looked at Sleeping Beauty drawings. What strikes me now is I didn't care what film those drawings were in, I lusted for them. SB is not one of my favorite Disney films, not by a long shot because I don't think it is their best storytelling. Frankly, halfway through I get kind of bored. Oddly , Dumbo/Lady and the Tramp are absolutely my faves . Why ? A lot of the wiggly drawing in Dumbo and it was not wacked by the perfectionism that ended up Disney yet it still moves me more than any other . Leading to the conclusion that art may be great for arts sake but never for film. This character was voiced by the brilliant Peter OToole. Some totally rough thumbnails.
