Tell-No-Tales Thursdays: Auction Onlookers at the Cantina
This fun-loving and drunken group of men is watching the Wench Auction from across the water. Here’s two close-ups of the same blokes at the Cantina:
Here’s another one from the cheapseats; these drunken pirates just can’t get enough of the Red-Headed Wench. Or maybe the Old Maids is what they fancy.
As you go under the bridge from the Auction Scene, you are leered at by 2 drunken pirates. Here they are from a vintage publicity shot:

As I was going through my daily viewing of Disney-related sites/blogs, I saw this AMAZING 1956 16mm footage from this site, vimeo.com/6016945 that John Frost over at The Disney Blog linked to; Walt Disney himself is featured in this footage from Jeff Altman's grandfather. It is probably the clearest home-movie footage of the park that I have seen. Jeff has been trying to figure out what Walt and crew were trying to film at the time. Anyone know the answer?
