Betty Boop Snow White

Greetings Scared Silly fans!

Well, my review of Laurel & Hardy' "Do Detectives Think" is written and ready to go pending some technical logistics that need to be worked out first... so look for that probably by mid-week.

In the interim, I thought I'd share this classic public domain cartoon. I'm sure all those on the East Coast currently buried under the post-Christmas blizzard can appreciate the snow, ice and chilly winds in the magnum opus, "Snow White" starring Betty Boop!

Produced by Max Fleischer, directed by Dave Fleischer and almost single-handedly animated by Roland Crandall, this bizarre short is a million miles away from the Disney feature-length classic... and makes it onto "Scared Silly" due to its spooky visualization of the legendary bandleader Cab Calloway's "St. James' Infirmary Blues." ENJOY!
