Andrew Vabre "Andy" Devine (October 7, 1905 – February 18, 1977) was an American character actor and comic cowboy sidekick known for his distinctive, whiny voice.


Au cinéma, Andy Devine impose son physique d'ancien footballeur semi-professionnel (et - pour les adeptes des versions originales - sa voix très particulière) dans plus de 150 films américains, entre 1926 et 1977, notamment des westerns. Entre autres, on le retrouve à plusieurs reprises aux côtés des réalisateurs John Ford (ex. : L'Homme qui tua Liberty Valance en 1962) et William A. Wellman (ex. : Une étoile est née, version 1937), ou de l'acteur John Wayne. En outre, il prête sa voix à des personnages de films d'animation, notamment Frère Tuck du Robin des Bois (1973) des Studios Disney.

À la télévision, entre 1955 et 1972, il se produit dans des shows, des téléfilms et des séries (Flipper le dauphin, La Quatrième Dimension, Batman...).

Enfin, il apparaît dans des séries et shows radiophoniques.

Pour ses contributions à la radio et à la télévision, deux étoiles lui sont dédiées sur le Walk of Fame d'Hollywood Boulevard.

The mouse and his child are two parts of a single small wind-up toy, which must be wound up by means of a key in the father's back. After having been unpacked, they discover themselves in a toy shop where they befriend a toy elephant and toy seal. The child mouse proposes staying at the shop to form a family, which the other toys ridicule. After breaking due to a fall from the counter, they are thrown in the trash. Outside, they become enslaved by Manny the rat, who runs a casino in the city dump and uses broken wind-up toys as his slave labor force. With the aid of a psychic frog, the mice escape and meet various animal characters on a quest of becoming free and independent self-winding toys. They rediscover the elephant and seal, who are somewhat broken down. Together they manage to form a family and destroy the rat empire.

Alan-a-Dale introduces the story of Robin Hood and Little John, two outlaws living in Sherwood Forest, where they rob from the rich and give to the poor townsfolk of Nottingham, despite the efforts of the Sheriff of Nottingham to stop them. Meanwhile, Prince John and his assistant Sir Hiss arrive in Nottingham on a tour of the kingdom. Knowing the royal coach is laden with riches, Robin and Little John rob Prince John by disguising themselves as fortune tellers. The embarrassed Prince John then puts a bounty on their heads and makes the Sheriff his personal tax collector, who takes pleasure in collecting funds from the townsfolk including hidden money from the crippled blacksmith Otto and a single farthing from a young rabbit, Skippy, who had just received it as a birthday present. However, Robin Hood, disguised as a beggar, sneaks in and gives back some money to the family, as well as his hat and a bow to Skippy in honor of his birthday.

The film follows a pilot and crew of a World War II-era Douglas C-47 Skytrain (the military version of the DC-3) who try to survive after a forced emergency landing in the uncharted wildlands near the Quebec-Labrador border. The pilot, Dooley (John Wayne), is a former airline pilot, who, like many others, was pressed into duty hauling war supplies across the northern route to England. Icy conditions force the aircraft to land, and with the difficulties of navigating far from settled country, they can provide only an approximate position to rescuers.
