Eddie Bracken 100/Pinocchio 75 -- February 7, 2015
Comic actor Eddie Bracken was born 100 years ago today, on 07-February-1915.  He was a member of director Preston Sturges' stock company, appearing in The Miracle of Morgan Creek and Hail the Conquering Hero.  I remember being surprised to see him in Baby's Day Out in 1994.

75 years ago today, Walt Disney released his second animated feature, loosely based on Carlo Collodi's  Pinocchio.  Notice that the poster mentions the Multiplane, developed at the Disney studios.
