The Animation Guild Golden Award Interviews #26 -- Frank 'n Ollie

Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston: Disney legends, Disney supervising animators, and 2/9ths of Disney's "Nine Old Men".
They had been retired for 8+ years when these interviews were done ...

They were both extraordinarily talented and had the kinds of professional careers that are exceedingly rare in the 21st century: working at one company for close to fifty years.

The only Disney employees who are remotely comparable are Ron Clements and John Musker -- Ron 'n John. But of course, they have spent most of their careers as directors, not animators.
