Disney Studio Tour - 1939

This is a film made in 1939 wherein Robert Benchley takes a tour of Disney Studios.  The film begins with Benchley arriving at Disney to pitch his idea for an animated film based on "The Reluctant Dragon", that beginning is cut from this YOUTUBE version but I streamed the total film on NETFLIX a few days ago.
Walt Disney had an incredible organization.  In the tour you will see animators sketching animals preparing to make "Dumbo" and "Bambi", you'll see the large sound effects department at work and the huge multi plane camera in operation.  The order and organization of the studio based on handmade animation was startling.
