Make Mine Music is premiered
Make Mine Music is an animated feature produced by Walt Disney and released to theatres by RKO Radio Pictures on August 15, 1946.
It is the eighth animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series.
During the Second World War, much of Walt Disney's staff was drafted into the army, and those that remained were called upon by the U.S. government to make training and propaganda films. As a result, the studio was littered with unfinished story ideas. In order to keep the feature film division alive during this difficult time, the studio released six package films including this one, made up of various unrelated segments set to music. This is the third package film, following Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros.
The film was entered into the 1946 Cannes Film Festival.
To date, Make Mine Music is the only movie in the Disney animated features canon not to gain a Region 4 DVD release.
