Dalí and Disney’s surreal collaboration

About

Salvador Dalí declared Walt Disney to be a ‘great American Surrealist’ inspired perhaps by the fantastical imagery in animations such as Fantasia. The admiration was mutual, and Disney invited Dalí to collaborate on a short film, which became Destino. Producer Baker Bloodworth takes up the story. Destino was showing at Tate Modern in the exhibition Dalí & Film.
