The Early Animated Films

"Any idiot that wants to make a couple of thousand drawings for a hundred feet of film is welcome to join the club."   -Winsor McCay 
Popular lore has it that the 1927 movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first animated feature film. That's not true at all, and how many came before that depends on how you define "feature film" and how you define "animated." Let's take a good look into the history of animation in film. The Royal Ocean Film Society shows us the various milestones of early cartoons and how they became the most imaginative motion pictures ever. They had to admit one mistake -the photograph of Earl Hurd is actually one of Frank Thomas. (via Boing Boing)
