Prod. 2079 - Lady and the Tramp (XX)
  - Seq. 12.1 - Christmas Party - The End

131 132 133 134135
Directed by Ham Luske assisted by Jim Swain. Laid out by Al Zinnen, Thor Putnam and Ken O'Connor. Secretary Ruth Wright.
This Final draft dated 9/1/55.

As I wrote before: I find this film incredibly well drawn and very well animated - less occasional "fumbling" than on the previous couple of films. It is a step up from Peter Pan, and on it's way to the meticulousness of Sleeping Beauty. The inking is SEVERAL steps up! The inking of the ending of lines in Pan was at times erratic - here it is under FULL control! It is a beautifully drawn film, with beautiful layouts, backgrounds and inking. Also, it is a nicely told story with a few surprises (though after seeing it for the umpteenth time, I am not all that surprised anymore) and especially fun side characters, like Jock, the beaver, the pound dogs and the Siamese cats. And then Milts marvelous scenes - Frank's spaghetti with-a da meat-sa balls... This film is truly a classic.

Remember my standards disclaimer about drafts! You know, the one that tells that drafts were not meant to be historical documents etc. I posted it on the first posting for this draft. It is good to keep it in mind!

This concludes the 14th feature film draft on this blog! Remember: you read it here first! Let's see when next I can get time to post anything...
