The Snow Man (1932)


The Snow Man is a theatrical short directed by Ted Eshbaugh, originally released in color back in 1932 sadly only the black and white 8 minute TV short remains today.

Eshbaugh a year later would go on to co-produce and direct an adaptation of the Wizard of Oz in full color with music by Carl Stalling but a dispute between him and the Technicolor Corporation forced the film to be presented in monochrome instead. Here though is the color version of the Wizard of Oz short!
