Quotes

Charles Solomon: When we look at Steamboat Willie today, it's hard to imagine how fresh and how different it must had been than the other animated films of that era. In November 1928. you had never seen anything like this before. Here was a character laughing and dancing and whistling and singing coordinated to the music more perfectly than anything you would have seen before.
