GHOST PLUSHIE KEYCHAIN
Museum Member Price: $13.50
Ghost Plushie Keychain From the 1933 Fleischer Studios cartoon 'Snow White'
Snow-White (also known as Betty Boop in Snow-White) is a 1933 American animated short in the Betty Boop series from Max Fleischer's Fleischer Studios. Dave Fleischer was credited as director, although virtually all the animation was done by Roland Crandall, who received the opportunity to make Snow-White on his own as a reward for his several years of devotion to the Fleischer studio. The resulting film, which took six months to complete, is considered both Crandall's masterwork and an important milestone of the Golden age of American animation.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMMING SERIES
Merchandise in support of the Academy Museum film series Weekend Short Cuts: Fabulous Fleischer Studio Cartoons. On weekend afternoons this fall, museum visitors can experience a suite of classic animated short films by Max and Dave Fleischer in the state-of-the-art David Geffen Theater (DGT) with the purchase of a general admission ticket.
Max Fleischer was an American animator, inventor, film director and producer, and studio founder and owner. Born in Kraków, Fleischer immigrated to the United States where he became a pioneer in the development of the animated cartoon and served as the head of Fleischer Studios, which he co-founded with his younger brother Dave. He brought such comic characters as Koko the Clown, Betty Boop, Popeye, and Superman to the movie screen, and was responsible for several technological innovations, including the rotoscope, the "follow the bouncing ball" technique pioneered in the Ko-Ko Song Car-Tunes films, and the "stereoptical process".
