Prod. UM28 - Two Gun Mickey

Another request: Ben Sharpsteen's first directorial credit is for the film called Two-Gun Mickey, released 12/15/1934. This draft, this blog's number 30 short film draft, is from 11/1/1934, and has no dash in the title. The film is a lively picture with a true hero.

Nineteen animators are credited: Leonard Sebring, Archie Robin, George "Ol' Flop-Ears" Drake, Nick [George], Jack Kinney, Woolie Reitherman, Don Towsley, Ugo D'Orsy, Louie Schmidt, Paul Allen, pioneer Earl Hurd, Cy Young, Art Babbitt, Ed Love, Ed Smith, Frank Oreb, Fred Moore, Roy Williams and Eric Larson. On IMDb we can read that Ollie Johnston assisted on this. Les Clark is there also credited for animation, but he sure ain't on the draft!

It is available on Disney Treasures DVD "Mickey Mouse in B&W."
Say, has anyone tried out the Beatronome yet?

Hans - Are you sure that's Tom Oreb, and not his older brother Frank Oreb, who was at Disney before Tom. I don't think Tom was at Disney that early.

Of course it was Frank! A few days ago, while reading in the Merritt/Kaufman Silly Symphonies book, it dawned on me that I was too fast here, and that I at least should have checked with Alberto's page, but I forgot to change it. I have now corrected it in the text...
