"It says a lot about the stranglehold Disney has on most people's idea of animated feature films, that so many people readily accept the oft parroted myth that 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' was the first ever animated feature. It is true that Disney's astonishing achievement reshaped the medium and pushed hand-drawn animation to new heights of artistry whilst firmly establishing a magical storytelling style that was all its studio's own. But that's no reason to rewrite history and ignore wha"

20 Great Films from the 20s (20 movies items)

"Released a good decade before Disney's 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs', Lotte Reiniger's 'The Adventures of Prince Achmed' is the oldest surviving animated feature film. This German animation uses cutout silhouettes to relate fantastical stories based on elements of '1001 Arabian Nights'. While this may sound primitive on paper, on screen Reiniger's shadow figures are surprisingly expressive and the film's impressive sets and pacey structure have the power to captivate the viewer very quickly."

Favorite Silent Films (25 movies items)

"A handsome prince rides a flying horse to faraway lands and embarks on magical adventures. This is the oldest existing full-length animated film. Though it is a bit dull at parts, the visuals themselves are exceptionally gorgeous!"

The 67 Most Influential Films Ever Made (67 movies items)

"Original Title: Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed Influential, How? The first animated feature pioneer – and still unchallenged reigning queen – of silhouette animation, director Lotte Reiniger beat Disney to the punch by a dozen years or more. Weaving together stories from the Arabian Nights and adding her own brand of wit and poetry, Reiniger set the template for telling fairy stories in a way that would enchant the kids, while packing in enough sophistication to keep grown-ups entert"
