The Gallopin’ Gaucho Review
The Gallopin’ Gaucho is a 1928 Disney short film featuring Mickey Mouse. It is the second film in the series.
This is a much weaker film than ‘Steamboat Willie’ which was to be expected, but still I expected a much better film than what we got here. It does have a very adult and mature tone to it with drinking included and I liked that. Mickey is quite memorable here and the swashbuckler approach is very pleasing. Minnie is also memorable as is Pete as the villain.
But the film is weakly animated and scored and it doesn’t wholly utilize on its premise and setting with only the rhea being quite memorable. The plot itself is rather simplistic and the action is forgettable. The gags are also lacking and the film is just not particularly funny or entertaining.
The Gallopin’ Gaucho has good characterization, but weaker action and particularly humor.
