An animated Western mock-opera “Silly Billy Romance” about Horlicks? Bring it on!
Advert 1939 6 mins
When you see something billed as a “Silly Billy Romance”, how can you resist? George Pal produced five animated adverts for Horlicks in the late 1930s, and this last film might be the best. The mock-opera singing, the Western setting and the barn dance dénouement are a winning combination – even if you are not a fan of malted milk. Pal’s “Puppetoon” replacement animation technique brings expressive movement to the characters in perfect synchronisation with the music.
