The Reluctant Dragon, A Disney Live Action/
Animated Omnibus Feature, came
to the screen on June 20,1941.
Humorist Robert Benchley visits the Disney
Studios to sell Walt on the idea of animating
the story of The Reluctant Dragon. While
evading an officious young studio guide,
Benchley stumbles into various studio
activities and departments, including an art
class, a sound effects session, the multiplane
camera studio (at which point he notices the
film has switched to Technicolor), the paint
lab, a storyboard session for the "Baby Weems"
segment, a movieola screening of the Goofy
cartoon "How to Ride a Horse", and finally
catches up with Walt in a screening room
just as he's previewing the studio's latest
film... The Reluctant Dragon!
