    What a wonderful treat. I spent the morning raking leaves and it was lovely to take a break and watch these two gifted performers. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks, Bobbi! I’m so glad (but not surprised) that you share my love for these two brilliant performers. It is such a joy to me to find these gems available online — and to see that they are even better than I remembered!

    I thought this was a highly unlikely duo– Burnett’s voice couldn’t possibly keep up with Andrews’ and Andrews was too stiff and regal to relate to Burnett– yet, somehow they work together beautifully. Thanks for a great clip.

    I think they were as surprised as anyone how well their chemistry worked on and off-stage when they made this in 1962. They became the closest of friends and did another terrific concert together in 1989.

Four Disney Artists Paint a Tree
Pure pleasure: Four great Disney artists, Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Josh Meador, and Walt Peregoy, paint a tree. There's a reason they call them actors with pencils. Or, just call them geniuses. [iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/9JK9uQNBDxQ?rel=0" frameborder="0"]

Mortdecai
There's a lot of noise in "Mortdecai" but what I remember most is the silences where everything pauses for a moment to allow the audience to laugh without drowning out the next witty riposte. Nope,
