Rhapsody In Rivets

Rhapsody in rivets

Rhapsody in Rivets is a 7-minute Academy Award-nominated animated film created in 1941 by Friz Freleng, featuring the "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" by Franz Liszt as "performed" by a team of animals constructing a skyscraper. The construction foreman, a lion, conducts their efforts. There is no dialogue.

It was reissued two times. Once in 1947 (evident of the closing card) and again in 1955. It is one of two Leon Schlesinger cartoons to be reissued 1954-55 season and onwards. The other is The Trial of Mr. Wolf but that one has original titles restored. However, Rhaspody In Rivets does not survive with original titles and opening rings.

The cartoon has been featured in many WARNER HOME VIDEO DVDs. However, all of them are the blue ribbon due to the original titles being lost.
