Frank and Ollie Filmographies

Before Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston visited Holland back in 1984, they sent me their filmographies as prepared by the Walt Disney Archives. Now, 24 years later, I came across them, as I was sorting old papers here in Denmark...

Thanks for this, Hans. For me, the interesting thing is what shorts the two of them worked on.

It is amazing--the amount of art that was produced and the number of lives that were touched.

Hans, are there any published drafts of Frank and Ollie's scenes in any of the features aside from 101 Dalmations?

Hi Kevin - I am not quite sure what you mean. Very few drafts have been made public except for on this blog... But all the features that Frank and Ollie worked on have them credited. Though in some cases not ALL of their influence is clear, as in Bambi on ice or Mr. Toad, where Frank supervised - and posed out most of the scenes, but other animators are credited...

Hi Hanks,

I guess I should have asked, are there any other published drafts outside of your stellar work here? I'm particularly interested in knowing specific shots that Frank or Ollie were completely responsible for (which we have thanks to you for 101 Dalmatians, at least to the extent that the drafts are accurate).

Does that make more sense?

Well, Kevin, first Jenny Lerew posted the draft for the short Nifty Nineties and All the Cats Join In (which really got me going over two years ago), then Mike Sporn had the first sequences of Pinocchio up, and Mike Barrier posted some pages from Song of the South. I think that is about it for published drafts outside of my blog, really. Maybe there were one or two more that I do not remember.

Right now, with Sleeping Beauty coming up in the cinema and on BlueRay/DVD, I'm thinking I may start scanning that one.
