If you have children, chances are you have a collection of Disney classics, including "Cinderella," "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," or "Bambi." Look closely at any of the opening credits and you'll see that two of those names, part of Disney's famed "Nine Old Men," are 80-something animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. Documentary, from Thomas's son Theodore, highlights the 60-plus year friendship and storied careers of these two pioneers, who are still well-known thanks to the recent animation craze. Seven years from conception to release, the film has many great pencil drawings and scenes from the movies, but focuses as much on the men's longtime friendship.
