2 disc set. Used. Excellent condition. Pioneering animators Max Fleischer (1883-1972) and his brother Dave (1894-1975) are famous for bringing beloved characters like Betty Boop, Popeye, and Koko the Clown to the silver screen. But by the mid-1930s, Fleischer Studios was facing fierce competition from Walt Disney and his Silly Symphonies. . Max and Dave initiated their Color Classics series in late '34 with "Poor Cinderella" starring Betty Boop. They also made stunning use of the Stereoptical process invented by Max, in which animation cels were filmed in front of real three-dimensional background sets. The Color Classics series would run until 1941, ranking up an impressive thirty-six entries and two Academy Award nominations along the way. They are considered some of the best films to bear the Fleischer name, and are much sought after by animation enthusiasts today. Price includes shipping.
