|Red Hot Riding Hood|
Made in the middle of WWII, Red Hot Riding Hood was the cartoon embodiment of the GIs’ favorite pinup, Betty Grable. Despite her flashy costume and vamping, Red speaks in the cultured voice of Katharine Hepburn, and the manic Wolf in the suave tones of Charles Boyer.
Aspects of the cartoon were borrowed for later movies, notably Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988) and The Mask (1994).
Here is a cut-down version of the original. (Best I could do. Sorry.)
