Mickey along side silent film greats animated

Silent film greats invited to Mickey's Gala Premiere

This would have been great for my dissertation but a bit late now, still great watch and the animation shows influence from Disney and along with mickey seeing other great film icons (list is below video).

Mickey Mouse - Mickey's Gala Premiere (1933)

Mickey's film is having a premiere, and all the stars turn out at the Chinese Theatre. Among those shown: Laurel and Hardy, the Marx Brothers, Jimmy Durante, Clark Gable, Sid Grauman, Mae West. The picture, Galloping Romance (Pegleg Pete kidnaps Minnie, and Mickey gives chase on a variety of animals), starts, and everyone in the audience sways along to the music, then rolls in the aisles with laughter. After, everyone comes on stage to congratulate Mickey; Garbo smothers him with kisses. Written by Jon Reeves
