"Sleeping Beauty." Disney. $29.95. This 1959 production contains some of the most polished animation and richly stylized visuals ever created at the Disney studio. But every frame of this opulent film was designed to take advantage of the wide-screen, 70mm Technirama process, and the 4:3 format of the television screen spoils many of the carefully composed images. In the climactic battle between Prince Philip and the dragon--one of the most dramatic sequences ever drawn--the dragon's body has been almost entirely cropped out of the frame. Still, much of the animation remains unmatched. Information: (818) 840-1111.
