Saturday Morning Cartoon: Mickey's Gala Premiere (1935)
Movie stars often made "cameos" in classic cartoons, but I don't think I've ever seen quite so many greats as there are in this cartoon. Here are the ones I could pick out:
Wallace Beery, Marie Dressler, Lionel Barrymore, Ethel Barrymore, John Barrymore, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, The Marx Brothers, Maurice Chevalier, Eddie Cantor, Jimmy Durante, Harold Lloyd, Clark Gable, Edward G. Robinson, Adolph Menjou, Mae West, Charlie Chaplin, George Arliss, Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, Woolsey and Wheeler, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Fredric March, Buster Keaton, Joe E. Brown, Douglas Fairbanks, Will Rogers, and William Powell.
After all that work putting names to faces, I found a more extensive list of the names on Wikipedia. So was the singing trio at the beginning Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow and Constance Bennett?
