The lasting influence of Disney artist Mary Blair will be celebrated through an examination of her concept artwork for Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan in the 1950s during “Mary Blair’s World of Color: A Centennial Tribute,” the latest installment of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Marc Davis Celebration of Animation, on Thursday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Several of today’s top animation talents will discuss Blair’s work as an artist and stylist and will also demonstrate how her work has influenced their own. The panel will be moderated by animation critic and film historian Charles Solomon.
Blair’s unmistakably bold and colorful designs continue to inspire artists in all areas of animation today. Her unique and lasting impact on animation continues to this day, though Blair is best known for her design of Disneyland’s “it’s a small world” attraction, which she worked on with legendary animator Marc Davis, for whom the lecture series is named, and his wife Disney Imagineer Alice Davis.
Panelists for the evening include:
- Pete Docter, whose Oscar nominations include Original Screenplay for Toy Story, WALL-E and Up, Animated Feature film for Monsters, Inc. and Animated Short Film for Mike’s New Car, received the 2009 Oscar for Animated Feature Film for Up.
- Mike Giaimo, who served as a character designer on The Brave Little Toaster and FernGully: The Last Rainforest, was the art director on Pocahontas and a visual development artist on Home on the Range.
- Eric Goldberg, who served as the supervising animator for the Genie in Aladdin, Phil in Hercules and Rabbit in Winnie the Pooh, was the co-director of Pocahontas as well as the director of the ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ and ‘Carnival of the Animals’ segments of Fantasia 2000.
- Susan Goldberg, who served as an assistant animator on Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Hercules, was the art director on the ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ and ‘Carnival of the Animals’ sequences in Fantasia 2000.
- Daisuke ‘Dice’ Tsutsumi, the lead color key artist on Robots and the lead color designer on Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! was the art director on Toy Story 3.
Following the program, attendees will be able to view a selection of original works by Blair.
The Marc Davis Lecture on Animation was established in 1994 to provide a forum for established film animators and other experts in the craft to share their experiences as well as explore with their colleagues the challenges of creating animation for the screen. The lecture is named in honor of the man who gave life to characters as diverse as Brer Rabbit, the beautiful Cinderella, Alice (of Wonderland fame), Tinkerbell, and the delightfully wicked Maleficent and Cruella De Vil.

To give viewers an up close and personal look at the stylish and timeless fashions worn by stewardesses in the 1960s, ABC’s “Pan Am” will showcase items from the iconic ladies’ uniform, ranging from head to toe. Beginning September 2, bus shelters in the West Hollywood area in Los Angeles and in front of Grand Central in New York City — among other locations – will be transformed into eye catching museum-displays exhibiting the custom-tailored jacket that gave the stewardesses a streamlined, sexy look, the perfectly-fitted white gloves that left no room for a wedding ring, the black leather, low-heeled pumps that provided comfort without compromising style, and the “Pan Am” blue leather flight bag, which was the perfect bag to carry belongings for a night out on any town they might have just flown into. Topping off this iconic uniform is the always-in-place classic hat. The displays will promote ABC’s “Pan Am,” one of the highly anticipated new dramas of the fall season.
Scheduled locations, among others, are:
Fairfax and Santa Monica in Los Angeles
42nd St. between Lexington & 3rd Ave in New York City
Passion, adventure and espionage… They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet.

Goldline International, Inc. announced today that the company is the official sponsor of an exclusive, limited quantity Disney commemorative coin in celebration of the release of Disney’s 50th full-length animated film “Tangled” at Hollywood’s historic El Capitan Theatre.
“The El Capitan is thrilled to honor this historic event by offering each of our guests a special commemorative coin sponsored by Goldline celebrating ‘Tangled’ as Disney’s 50th Animated Movie”
“We’re honored to celebrate this exciting Disney milestone by making this exclusive coin available to Disney fans of all ages,” said Mark Albarian, President and CEO of Goldline. Albarian noted that it is Goldline’s 50th anniversary in the rare coins and precious metals industry.
“The El Capitan is thrilled to honor this historic event by offering each of our guests a special commemorative coin sponsored by Goldline celebrating ‘Tangled’ as Disney’s 50th Animated Movie,” said Lylle Breier, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Special Events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. “It’s a way of celebrating this hilarious and hair-raising new animated adventure as only the El Capitan can.”
While supplies last, the commemorative coins will be made available to every guest attending Disney’s “Tangled” film during its engagement at Hollywood’s famous El Capitan Theatre, which will play the film from November 24 through December 16, 2010.
Based on the fairy tale of Rapunzel, “Tangled” is the 50th full length animated film created by Walt Disney Animation Studios, a legacy that began with 1937’s legendary “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) seeks refuge in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. “Tangled” is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
The El Capitan show includes an all-new musical revue starring many favorite Disney characters and introducing Rapunzel and Flynn in their first live onstage appearance. Tickets can be purchased at www.elcapitantickets.com. The El Capitan will also offer a special “Tea Party with Rapunzel” in the theater’s lower lounge on select days, which includes hot tea and tea sandwiches, along with a commemorative photo with Rapunzel herself. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
