Salvador Dali and Walt Disney collaborated on an animation project called Destino in 1945, but it wasn't released, or even finished. Roy E. Disney, Walt's nephew, unearthed the project in 1999 and released it in 2003.
The seven-minute short follows the story of Chronos and his ill-fated love for a mortal woman named Dahlia.[1] The story continues as Dahlia dances through surreal scenery inspired by DalĂ­'s paintings. There is no dialogue, but the soundtrack includes music by the Mexican composer Armando Dominguez. The 17-second original footage that is included in the finished product is the segment with the two tortoises (this original footage is referred to in Bette Midler's host sequence for The Steadfast Tin Soldier in Fantasia 2000, as an "idea that featured baseball as a metaphor for life").
