WILD WAVES


Shown as part of the Ocean Film Series

WILD WAVES (1929, 7 min.)

At the beach, Minnie is swept out to sea by a wave (while still wearing her high heels!). Mickey struggles with a rowboat (taken from atop an amorous couple) before swimming out to save her. When Minnie comes ashore, she is disoriented and depressed, so Mickey and the various creatures on the shore (pelicans, a walrus, seals, etc.) do a little song and dance to cheer her up. – Jon Reeves



Introduced by Brian Taves, Senior Cataloger, Library of Congress and author of The Romance of Adventure: The Genre of Historical Adventure in the Movies.
