Dali and Disney

Here's something strange: Salvador Dali (1904-1989) and Walt Disney (1901-1966) collaborated on a film. The animated project, called "Destino," was abandoned after only 8 seconds of test footage had been shot. In 1999, Walt's nephew Roy Edward Disney decided to complete the film - 50 years after initial production began - and enlisted 25 Disney artists, who consulted the original storyboards and Dali's notes. The resulting 6-minute short feature was not widely screened, has not been released on DVD, and has been removed from YouTube, so all I have to offer is this link to some stills and a short clip.
