Eric Larson

One of Disney's nine old men.

Like It Sleeping Beauty (1959) -- Co-directed with Les Clark, Clyde Geronimi, and Wolfgang Riethermann. Basically a remake of Snow White with not one but three fairy godmothers from Cinderella. The story is kind of goofy sometimes, but the production design is so gorgeous (maybe the most gorgeous of any non-Fantasia Disney movie, and the darkest since "Night on Bald Mountain") that the shortcomings don't matter much. Pretty nice stuff overall.
