14. Dumbo with Alex Dudok de Wit
Sam Clements is curating a fictional film festival. He'll accept almost anything, but the movie must not be longer than 90 minutes. This is the 90 Minutes Or Less Film Fest podcast.
In episode 14, Sam is joined by Alex Dudok de Wit, freelance film journalist, Associate Editor for Cartoon Brew and curator for Short of the Week. Alex has chosen the 1941 animated classic Dumbo (64 minutes), the fourth feature from Walt Disney Productions.
Sam and Alex discuss Dumbo's shoestring budget, the crow controversy, and why pink elephants were a safe choice in 1941.
We'll be back in a couple of weeks.
