"It makes an admirable fairy story, and my only trouble is that I just can't spend an evening over a book of fairy stories or in looking at the pictures in a book of fairy stories, even when these have been drawn by Arthur Rackham. And Walt Disney's pictures are not, to my way of thinking, as good as Arthur Rackham's. Nor do I see any particular virtue in the trick of animation once the novelty has worn off... Intrinsically, the film of Pinocchio possesses less than one-tenth of the invention of Peter Pan and none at all of that play's wit."
(James Agate, Tatler)
