Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Clyde Geronimi, Les Clark, Eric Larson and Wolfgang Reitherman direct Mary Costa, Bill Shirley and Eleanor Audley in this Walt Disney classic fairytale about the princess who pricks her finger and falls into an eternal slumber.

Maleficent – nasty, threatening, sexy. The three fairy godmothers – nearly always onscreen, driving forward the action, obsessed with colour. The backdrops – geometric, experimental, iconic. Briar Rose – a bit lost in the mix, caught sleeping.
