Today it’s time to remember one of the most famous American film producer. Walter Elias ‘Walt’ Disney died December 15th, 1966.
He was director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon and philanthropist. Disney is famous for his influence in the field of entertainment during the twentieth century. As the co-founder (with his brother Roy O. Disney) of Walt Disney Productions, Disney became one of the best-known motion picture producers in the world.
Let’s pause for a moment and think of this wonderful father of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and so much more great figures.
Songwriter Robert B. Sherman said about the last time he saw Disney:
“He was up in the third floor of the animation building after a run-through of ‘The Happiest Millionaire’. He usually held court in the hallway afterward for the people involved with the picture. And he started talking to them, telling them what he liked and what they should change, and then, when they were through, he turned to us and with a big smile, he said, ‘Keep up the good work, boys.’ And he walked to his office. It was the last we ever saw of him.”
