By the way, in case some you haven't been keeping track, tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of this blog. For a while, I thought that would be "good bye," but I've since decided to keep it going. I want to thank my regular readers for taking such an interest over the past year, and here's hoping I have more of you to thank at this time next year. Okay, here we go:
- Fanasia (1940) Originally “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” was to be a short released by itself, but Walt and Stokowski had so much fun working on it, that they built the feature around it. Still, this is the best part of the movie. Can you believe most of the Disney staff wanted Dopey the Dwarf to play the lead instead of Mickey?
- The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010) Again, only very loosely based on the fable, but a really excellent film complete with a sequence that pays tribute to the animated version. Stars Nicolas Cage, Alfred Molina and Jay Baruchel, after whom my character is named.
