When I See an Elephant Fly for 70 Years

Yesterday marked the 70th Anniversary of the release of Walt Disney's fourth animated classic, Dumbo. The heart warming tale of a large eared elephant that finds fulfillment and happiness through the use of his unnaturally sized ears to fly was released on October 23, 1941.

Coming right near the middle of Disney's Golden Age, Dumbo is a brilliant, emotional, funny and generally brilliant film that is indicative of the legacy of Walt Disney and the company he and his brother spawned, that the film is still popular today. Though somewhat outdated today, being nearly three quarters of a century old, the film is still a joy to watch and hearkens back to a time when cinema was so much simpler and so much more magical.

So, kudos to Disney for producing a true classic and let's remember this fantastic film with one of its most famous clips.
