The best of Disney
July 27, 2006
Disney is enjoying a spectacular summer with the smash hit Cars and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, inevitably slated to be the studio's biggest success ever.
Leaping to the opportunity to remember our own favourites, we realise this is a really hard list to limit to ten.
Feel free to mail in
our most striking omission/inclusion.
So then, here goes: Raja Sen's top 10 Disney films of all time.
10. Sleeping Beauty
Directed by longtime Disney veteran and creator of many-a-classic (Cinderella and Peter Pan, among others) Clyde Geronimi, this film was in production from 1951 to 1958, finally releasing in 1959 -- Disney's longest schedule yet.
No surprise, since the breathtaking background paintings themselves took from seven to ten days apiece! With a wispy princess modelled on Audrey Hepburn, this remains one of the most captivating animations to date.
