Sample text

Within this tighter format, the sequence of actions for the gags and situations held together as a story (at least it had potential to do so). In his biography of Walt Disney, Neal Gabler provides an example of the directions for a scene in the Laugh-O-Gram Cinderella:8 FLASH TO CLOSE-UP OF ONE FAT LADY IN HAMMOCK reading ‘Eat and Grow Thin’ – another girl very skinny sitting in chair – they are eating out of it – slim girl puts down book – she is cross-eyed – she begins talking to fat girl – fat girl answers back.

Some shorts, however, such as Alice the Jail Bird, are not only packed with gags, but have a recognizable story as well. The gags in Alice the Jail Bird are some of the most innovative in the series. From the first gag that sets the story in motion, the gags are mostly contextual and move the action forward.

The turtle obligingly stretches his neck up to the window for them and they steal the pie.

Without seeing Alice’s Wonderland she had written back immediately.

What I wanted to do was get a job in a studio—any studio, doing anything” (Gabler 77). He visited them all, looking for ways to get introductions and find work in the film industry, but he made little headway.
