Cinderella Photostats

A small selection of photostats from Cinderella
Filming all that live action to help the animators maintain realism in their work resulted in a very short animation schedule. I remember Frank Thomas telling me that they did the whole thing (animation) in six months. Unbelievable!!
Frank gave a LOT of credit for the successful portrayal of his character, Lady Tremaine, to actress Eleanor Audley. He loved her sinister, powerful voice as well as her nuanced live action performance.


  1. These are gorgeous!! Wow, just six months to complete all the animation? That's truly unbelievable. Many of the original "Tom & Jerry" shorts took longer than that. Just goes to show that the Disney animators really knew their craft! :)
