Paul Dukas - The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Fantasia

On this day in 1940, Walt Disney released the film Fantasia.  It's a statement about how much more sophisticated those times were than ours, as the assumption behind the film was that the mass audience was up to an entire film about classical music.

The film, of course, is well known to everyone and has been a long running success - adjusted for inflation, it is the 22nd top grossing picture of all time.

Happy birthday, Fantasia!

The imagination, creativity and even the hard work of animation - frame by frame- is amazing.
To choreograph a cartoon so well is hugely impressive.
Talented people working together can do wonderful things.

Thanks for the musical interlude and the appreciation of artistic genius.
