Julius Shoots Up the Place

Julius the Cat blazes his two guns to make the rescue in Alice in the Wooly West, a 1926 Alice comedy.

Walt Disney uses an effect that carried on well into the age of television. He uses solid light and dark to signify flashes of light and interposes a bunch of different drawings on ones. It’s still a good effect.

There are a couple of cute gags, like when Julius shoots out the torso of a mouse, but it runs away anyway.

By the way, where did all the animals go that had their hands up in the air?
