(1995)3Jeremy WheelerGenuinely sweet and entertaining, Frank and Ollie is a love letter to the incomparable team who pioneered the personality-driven animation now known as the Disney trademark. Focusing mainly on interviews from the duo, with help from various historians and fellow animator Glen Keane, the documentary gives viewers a glimpse into the early world of the Mouse's studios and the two men whose companionship and artistry helped breed three-dimensional life into the flat world of animation. Original pencil tests and spot-on reenactments of the duo's classic moments create the most vivid scenes, bringing new eyes to long-loved gags from years past, while the subjects' quiet glee is the glue that holds the piece together. One can't help but envy their uncanny link amidst such highly creative times and long years of friendship, which is basically why Frank's son Ted made the film. You couldn't ask for two better subjects to spotlight than Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. For their names to be synonymous with each other, in and now out of the business, is a compliment and proof of their impact -- both onscreen and off.
