Title: The Golden Touch
Series: Silly Symphonies
Running time (of viewed version): 10:02
Commercial DVD Availability: SS 1 d1
Synopsis: What good is money if there is no food? No good at all. The same can not be said of the lack of cats.
Comments: Billions of gold coins in 1935. Hairy knobby man fingers, pre-saging the disgusting power. The cat with the ruff is as close as the cartoon comes to a standard style Disney character. The king and elf are not what I think of as Disney like. Pretty paltry mustache the king has. I think this story has fallen out of favor because it does not really mesh with type A executive ideas about wealth. Which is to say: "sacrifice everything for money, even if it slits your own throat" is now the watchword (which it has been in the past as well, otherwise the story would not have survived).
