Mickey in Living Color
7 August 2005 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

For the REAL first time. This short was made for the Academy Awards banquet back in 1932, before politics and TV ratings ruined the prestigious awards AND the 'ceremony'. Funny thing is, Mickey appears wearing green shorts instead of his usual red and Pluto is grey. The short itself is nothing more than a walking parade of all the particular Oscar Nominees that year, including Wallace Beery and Jackie Cooper, Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt, Helen Hayes, Fredric March and Marie Dressler from Emma. I can see how this would appeal to those at the dinner and no one else but it's cool to be able to watch this for nostalgia purposes.

I did review this before but the IMDb deleted my review for no reason, so lets keep our fingers crossed that they don't do it again eh.
