In the original story, Princess Aurora sleeps for 100 years before being awakened by a prince’s kiss. In the Disney version, Prince Philip comes to her rescue much sooner.
George Brun’s orchestral score, which was nominated for an Academy Award, expertly blended famous themes from Tchaikovsky’s ballet.
With a budget that exceeded $6 million in 1959, this was Walt Disney’s most lavish and expensive animated feature to date.
Determined to make the characters as realistic as possible, Disney had a live action film shot with actors posing as Sleeping Beauty, the Prince, and Maleficent, for the animators to use.
New York Times critic Bosley Crowther called the fight between Prince Philip and Maleficent the noisiest and scariest go-round he (Disney) has ever put into one of his films.
