"El Terrible Toreador" (1929) - Iwerks Pencil

This is the only item I have from "El Terrible Toreador." Music by Carl Stalling -- one of the great people in the business...

It's a strong piece. Good character development. Shows some corrections in the hand movement. Attributed to Ub Iwerks (who did the animation for the film). Incidently, while Walt Disney is listed as the Director by most sites, Iwerks is also listed as the director in others. The entry on IMDB had the following trivia:
According to the DVD commentary track, the model for the toreador caricature was Walt Disney himself.
