    Re: The Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect Thread 7: Further Realms of Fright

    A piece of the Disneyland Haunted Mansion up for sale (about midway down the page):

    Upcoming Profiles in History auction is a Disney collector’s dream, with theme park artwork, posters, vehicles, Imagineering models and more | Inside the Magic

    Of course it comes at a time when I only have $3.03 left in the bank.

    Disneyland really needs to do something about all the graffiti.

    Look closely, the CGI mirror version has hair only on the sides, not on TOP. The AA has hair on TOP.
    The AA has hair on top (a comb-over, to boot) AND a facelift!!!

    I didn't even know the cupola had doors! I always thought they were just really big windows, lol.

    And they both look unconvincing compared to the physical figure.

    They look very digital, rough and disproportionate.

    A comment I made over at DB.com with regard to the deceptive dazzle of new tech: Just compare the original Fantasia with Fantasia 2000. The framework material of the original is somewhat dated, but for the most part the animated segments are not. Most of them look as fresh today as they did in 1940. But now, take a look at your copy of F2K, if you haven't done so lately. That cutting edge, dazzling computer animation from 2000 looks painfully dated today.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    SIDETRACK:
    Anyone else ever consider that the Gracey of Master Gracey could be a first name?

    You'd think that if Gracey was a surname, it would be on other tombstones in the family plot.

    There are a few definite surnames in the mansion, but Gracey isn't one of them.
    The most common that we know of are Dread and Pock.

    WDW of course has that sign in Frontierland for Gastley Mansion.

    I don't want to start any silly fanfic rumors, but...
    Gracey Gastley, perhaps? Gracey West (same epitaph, remember)?

    Honestly, I'd get a kick out of that - if WDI made it known that Gracey is a first name and not a last name.

    It would, in one move, wipe out all the "Gracey family" or "Gracey Manor" residuals from the fan fiction, Eddie Murphy movie, etc.

    I was never "dazzled" by Fantasia 2000, as most just doesn't have that hand-drawn look and charm of the original. The segment that seemed closest to the old-school Disney style was the pink flamingo with the yo yo. The Noah's Ark/Donald Duck segment was also close to the old style, but so boring in content. In fact, most of that film was forgettable. I can only wonder how Fantasia 2000 might have been done in 1940.

    The original Fantasia has some very dated-looking segments, and contains quite a bit of the Art Deco/Streamline look of the 1930s and 1940s. However, the content was so much better and so much more engaging that it's easy to forget that it was released in 1940. Not unlike how the background music in the Graveyard is very dated, yet it still works today. Quirky, charming, and interesting.
