JANUARY

Walt Disney's masterpiece fairy tale turns 61 on January 29th. Despite Disney's iconography leaning heavily on princesses and fairy tales, the studio would not produce another princess-based feature film until "The Little Mermaid" in 1989, three decades later.

87 years ago, movie posters boasted of MGM's blockbuster hit: "More stars than have ever been in any picture before!" And, truly, the credits scroll on this picture is a who's-who of 1930's cinema. On January 12th, we'll raise a glass to this star-studded hit.

This nearly forgotten Marion Davies vehicle celebrates its 93rd anniversary on January 29th. Directed by Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle under the pseudonym "William Goodrich", Arbuckle was given the reigns by William Randolph Hearst as a sort of apology for the character assassination Arbuckle had gotten during his murder trial.
