Prod. 2074 - Peter Pan (XI)
  - Seq. 09.0 - Hook Has A Cold

115116117118119
Directed by Gerry Geronimi, laid out by Tom Codrick and Don Griffith. Assistant director Lou Debney, secretary Marie Dasnoit.
This FINAL draft dated 9/24/52.

Animation by Frank Thomas (Hook) , Ollie Johnston (Smee), Cliff Nordberg (Smee and Croc) and Fred Moore (small frantic Smee) with effects by George Rowley.

This sequence is shared by Frank and Ollie, while Nordberg has a few lesser Smee scenes. I sometimes wonder what Fred Moore would have thought about having the "role" of third fiddle to his former assistants. This draft is dated 2 months before his untimely death.

So far this film has had the most logical sequence-director casting yet... they have all been cast by location: Jaxon = London, Gerry = Pirate Ship, Luske = Island. I wonder if this will continue.

I've often wondered that about Fred Moore myself. Les Clark as well, who was there from the beginning but never really rose through the ranks (and his last feature work seems to have been a few uncredited scenes in "The Sword in the Stone").

Nordberg handles the pirate in shot 5 very simmilar to the singing accoridan pirate that Hook offs in sequence 4. He draws them with the same beady eyes.

It's interesting how Frank and Ollie work on eachothers characters in these sequnces.

Frank and Ollie appear to have some real use of exaggeration here in a few scenes here and there and they sure were good at that...
