I am always learning something new. According to the book, "Tinker Belles And Evil Queens", Walt Disney made short silent films termed "carnivalesque". Unlike his later successes, these apparently had chaotic and even risque themes. For instance the Alice series, which starred Virginia Davis and Margie Gay. (Alice Gets In Dutch, Alice's Tin Pony, Alice Rattled By Rats). This book fleshes out the sexual symbolism apparent in 1920's Disney productions. That alone captured my interest. Do these silent shorts exist, and has anyone seen them?
