Good afternoon! This day in Disney history, Mar 1st, 1940. During a screening of "Bambi" after seeing the footage for the very 1st time, Walt Disney turned to the two animators, Frank Thomas & Milt Kahl (2 of walts 9 old men) w/tears in his eyes. He then says, "Thanks, fellows. That's great stuff, no kidding. Those personalities are pure gold." Walt seldom gave a direct compliment. So this was considered a humungous deal! When "Bambi" is completed (2 years later) it will have the fewest lines of dialogue of any Disney animated feature. The photo below left to right: Milt Kahl, Marc Davis, Frank Thomas & Walt Disney, seated Ollie Johnston. Have you seen this film? What is your favorite part?
