About this title


Noted film historian John Canemaker brings to life the team whose combined individual genius defined the art of character animation. Think of your favorite moments and characters in Disney films from the thirties to the seventies and chances are most were animated by one of Walt Disney's "Nine Old Men." Through the span of their careers, these nine highly skilled animators exhibited an unparalleled loyalty to their employer. This book explores their artisitic breakthroughs, failures, and rivalries, and their individual relationships with each other and with Walt.

From Library Journal:

During the 1930s, Walt Disney dubbed the most prolific animators at his studio "The Nine Old Men." This book is the story of each, their individual styles, the animated characters they created, their inspirations, and their dealings with their boss and each other. A chapter is devoted to each man, and in the end we view their collective impact upon the Disney studio. Lavishly produced, this oversized book is filled with rare and important reproductions of animation cells and candid pictures of the men and their associates, all printed on heavily coated paper to bring out the full luster and detail. Canemaker, an internationally recognized animator and animation historian as well as the director of the film animation program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, is the author of several other significant books on animation. His book will be of considerable interest to anyone concerned with the creative forces that shaped some of the most recognizable characters and sequences from Walt Disney Productions' most famous animated films. Highly recommended for any library. David M. Lisa, Wayne P.L., NJ
