Prod. 2003 - Seq. 11 (II) - Safe Yourself!

In this one-before-last installment, we meet Milt Kahl's Pinoke and Woolie Reitherman's whale, with appearances by Art Babbitt, Jack Bradbury, Bill Shull and Eric Larson, and quite a bit of Art Palmer...
Here is a fun bit of info: the copies of the Pinocchio storyboards that Michael Sporn is posting are actually quite well known to me: they are copies of the stats of the boards that Dave Hand gave my old mentor Børge Ring back in 1950, photographs of which Børge gave to John Canemaker. I spent a lot of time in the early 80s studying these.
It's a Small World After All!

John tells me that these boards did come from Borge Ring. It's all a small circle, isn't it.

Thanks Borge, thanks John.

I'd like to add to the list of thank-yous: Thanks, Dave Hand -without him giving those boards to Børge, we would ultimately not have seen them now - and without him teaching Børge all about musical timing (and Børge teaching me!), I would not have been able to have added to that topic previously. Thanks, Stefan, who is the son of the late Bjørn Frank Jensen, Børge's fellow danish animator in Holland and who is currently a famous fashion photographer in Stockholm, for photographing those boards to send to John, and Thanks, Mike, for posting them.

Another thing: knowing the provenance of the boards may also cast some light on the reason of their existence. In other words, since these were given to Børge in 1950 by Dave Hand, Hand must have gotten these at the studio on or before 1944 (the lettering suggests late 30's, too, I might add), so these were most likely (relatively early) production boards. My two bits.
