Prod. RM5 - Hawaiian Holiday

We have read a lot about certain scenes, now here is all of it.
Directed by Ben Sharpsteen. The header of the draft does not give other information: the date on the draft is the release date, 9/24/1937. Alberto shows that a Robert Dranko worked on layouts.

A classical bit of character casting to few animators. Woolie Reitherman animates Goofy, Al Eugster does the bit with Donald and Pluto and the starfish, and Shamus Culhane takes care of Pluto and the crab. 50 feet of Pluto by George - I suspect that is Nick George. Frenchy de Tremaudan is gratiously allowed a few long shots and two small intoductions. Small wonder he became a monk...

Thanks for this, Hans. I knew that Al Eugster handled Donald in this cartoon, but I never knew that he animated Pluto, too.

I'm always fascinated to see how the animators were cast in these cartoons where three or four characters with their own "series" appear (whether they already had their own series at the time or whether they would go on to do so). Do you have any more of those? Any chance of a draft for "Clock Cleaners" or "On Ice"?

That's a new one to tell about Frenchy de Tremaudan becoming a monk .

David, I really do not know MORE than that, I read it somewhere - and I can't even remember where, except that it was pretty authotitative. Gilles Armand de Trémaudan lived from March 9th, 1909 until December 24th, 1988, and seems to have lived his last years in Yountville, Napa, CA. I believe he became a monk somewhere around WWII, but here my memory lapses...

the spectre: I will see what I can do. I do not believe I have On Ice.

Kris de Tremaudan:
He was a member of the Franciscian Friars in the 1950's. Frenchy de Tremaudan did a stint in the air force during WW 2. He was ousted from the Friars and eventually ended up in a Veterans Hospital where he died of Alzheimers in Northern California.

Thanks, Kris! Since he is one of a group of unsung heroes of Disney animation, any information about him helps us understand him, and his animation, better.

Now - did he leave any memoires? Or, for that matter, production materials? It would be interesting to know his feelings while at Disney, and why he left... I suspect that you are related?
