Why, boy, I've got more magic in one little finger.Now, don't tell me you've never heard of the marvelous Madam Mim? "The Sword in the Stone, " 1963 is the 18th full length feature film produced by Walt Disney and it was released on December 25, 1963 by Buena Vista Distribution. The film was based on the novel of the same name, that was first published in 1938. It was later republished in 1958 as the first book of T. White's tetralogy The Once and Future King.
It was to be the final Disney animated film released before Walt Disney's death on December 15, 1966. The songs in the film were written and composed by the Sherman Brothers, who would become very famous for their future work on later Disney films including; "Mary Poppins, " 1964, "The Jungle Book, " 1967, and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks, " 1971. Madam Mim was the villain in the film and was voiced by Martha Wentworth, a veteran actress with a long radio history dating back to the 1920's.
She was the voice of several Disney characters in "101 Dalmatians" including Nanny; and Mim was her final credited role. Madam Mim was animated by two of Disney's greatest animators Milt Kahl (who also designed the character, refining storyboard sketches from animator Bill Peet), and Frank Thomas. Kahl animated her first appearance in the film, her initial interaction with Arthur; while Frank Thomas oversaw her famous "Wizards' Duel" with Merlin.This cel is from the first appearance of Mim, animated by Kahl; and occurs when Wart (soon to be King Arthur, but at the moment having been transformed into a bird by Merlin), accidentally falls down Mim's chimney. In order to impress Wart and prove she is more powerful a wizard than Merlin she says: Why, boy, I've got more magic in one little finger. This is a wonderful cel of Mim; she is holding up her little finger, with her eyes and mouth open while talking to Wart (Arthur). This would be a great addition to any animation art collection!
