John Canemaker on Ollie
Disney authority Jeff Kurtti points out there's a great piece on Ollie Johnston in The Wall Street Journal by the great John Canemaker. I of course have been planning on posting something here about the master animator and truly good person that was Ollie, but John says it better than anyone. The animation historian and analyst is of course the biographer of the Nine Old Men and was a close friend of Ollie as well. You can read John's appreciation of the last of the Nine Old Men here.
