Richard Rich

A Disney guy who eventually went on to direct non-Disney stuff about swans and stuff.

The Black Cauldron (1985) -- Co-directed with Ted Berman. This had a cult status in my mind for years since, first of all, I was a fan of the Lloyd Alexander books about Prydain and, second, because this was Disney's first and only PG-rated movie that they never seemed to want to release on video. So when they finally did, I rushed out to rent it... and I was disappointed. The story is just wrong. Gurgi, the comic character, is the one who does the big sacrificing at the end. Just bad storytelling. D
