This Day in Film History:
January 12


1905:

Tex Ritter, one of many singing cowboys of the '30s and '40s and father of John, is born in Murvaul, Texas.

2004:

The move may or may not have been hastened by the underwhelming performance of some of the last hand-drawn animated features (e.g. Brother Bear)
