9 min./ USA / dir. Wilfred Jackson
One of Disney’s Silly Symphonies, this classic film follows the plot of the myth of Persephone, yet its imagery evokes a Biblical-style Hell with its Satanic main character. It features operatic singing and jazz-inflected music throughout. Its production was important to the creation of Disney’s first feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, as it allowed animators to develop their skills in designing human figures.
