Ugo D'Orsi - my 41st choice as a Disney Legend

Ugo D'Orsi was an animator who worked on several Disney Studios projects in the 1930s and 40s. He is my 41st choice as a Disney Legend. He was also involved in the special effects department at Disney. Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston wrote in their book Disney Animation: The Illusion of Life, they said, Through the entire thirties, the entire Effects Department consisted of only two men: Ugo D'Orsi, a straightforward, stubborn, and dedicated Italian, and Cy Young...quiet and sensitive...who loved to play the bass fiddle as a hobby. Thomas and Johnston added, Since [D'Orsi and Young] did most of the careful work themselves, they needed only a single assistant between them.
Ugo D'Orsi did many of the great water-effects in Mickey Mouse Sorcerer's Apprentice section in Fantasia - and that is believed to be Ugo D'Orsi at his best.
Here are some of the films D’Orsi worked on for Disney.
