La notte insonne di Topolino

Mickey Mouse's Slepless Night
by Goffredo Alessandrini Fiction Italia 1931 45'

The film is made of some brief animated shorts, dated 1930 [The Picnic (directed by Burt Gillet), The Cactus Kid (directed by Walt Disney; this copy includes only the opening title, not the whole short), The Gorilla Mystery and The Fire Fighters (both directed by Burt Gillett)]. They are joined by linking scenes, with real actors wearing masks which reproduce Walt Disney's famous characters, in the first version designed by Ub Iwerks. The surrealistic atmosphere of a sleepless night permeates the cartoons. The protagonists, frightened by a storm and the disquieting news of a newspaper, just can't sleep.
