366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 135

The Date: February 12

The Movie: Fantasia (1940)

What Is It?: Forget The Buggles. Forget “The Monkees”. Forget Help! and A Hard Day’s Night. This is the true birth of music video, and image and sound have never been joined as perfectly as they are in the “Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, “Rites of Spring”, and “Night on Bald Mountain” sequences. It’s impossible to imagine the Disney of today having the guts or honesty to depict evolution as it does in “Rites of Spring”, and it’s no surprise that this was one of the sequences excised in the lame Fantasia 2000 version.

Why Today?: Today is Darwin Day.
