Ada’s favorite movie is American Legends, the Disney collection of shorts about Johnny Appleseed, Casey Jones, Paul Bunyan and my favorite, John Henry. I’ve seen this DVD about 100 times at least, but each time I cry when I watch it. When the workers are wondering how they can build their railroad and John Henry stands up and says, “I’ll take you there!”, I completely lose it. Every single time. Here’s the clip of it (skip the first two minutes because it’s just James Earl Jones giving a boring introduction. Start at 2:00 until 4:00. Or just watch the whole thing. It’s a cartoon of the best sort.) Does it choke you up or is it just me?
