Résumé de l'éditeur

Walt Disney's imagination is still seen in theme parks throughout the world bearing his name, on numerous live-action films and television specials, on toys and assorted merchandise, and on an international corporation known both for the high quality of its creative output and its ubiquity. During his lifetime, Disney (1901-1966) appeared on the covers of Time, Look, Newsweek, TV Guide, and the Saturday Evening Post, and he was featured on hundreds of radio and television talk shows.

Walt Disney : Conversations collects interviews and profiles of the man who created Mickey Mouse, developed a multinational creative corporation, and produced such full-length animated classics as Snow White, Cinderella, Fantasia, Bambi, Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, and Pinocchio, along with countless short cartoons.

Bringing together over twenty pieces from the late 1920s to the late 1960s, this book traces Disney's entire career and shows how Disney saw his productions as shapers of popular culture. Walt Disney : Conversations features an interview conducted by producer Cecil B. DeMille, Disney's testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), and rarely seen pieces from the Disney corporation's archives. The collection reveals a complex visionary whose impact on animation, live-action film, television, and theme parks has never been equaled.
