Silhouettes in a Storm

Silhoutte shots find their way into several scenes of Ub Iwerks' The Cuckoo Murder Case, released in 1930.

One involves Flip running toward a house, being scared by the face formed by the windows, and running away, only to be blown into the house by the winds.

Being a mystery, and the being the early 1930s, the cartoon includes a piano and a skeleton.

No animators are credited. Carl Stalling gets a screen mention for the score, which includes "The Year of Jubilo."
