File:The Old Mill 6687.jpg

The Old Mill is a 1937 Silly Symphonies short and is considered one of the most important shorts in the Classic Disney Shorts lineup. While the short has no plot or concrete characters, what carries it is its astounding animation quality-being made not long before the release of Snow White, it was meant to not only prepare the animators to the grueling task of completing the aformentioned film, but also to test Disney's then new Multiplane Camera. But the results are nothing short of jaw-dropping-naturalistic, fluid animation, rich, lush three strip technicolor, and some very, very impressive staging, mood and use of scenery. Also a source of Nightmare Fuel near the end.

This short holds the place of #14 on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list.
