Overview

When Life magazine unveiled its list of the one hundred most influential Americans of the 20th century, the selection committee was guided by one question: How would our lives be different if each of the honorees did not live? Not surprisingly, Walt Disney made the list.

In addition to a complete biography, Jackson explores Disney's impact on American mass media and popular culture by focusing on animation, live-action film, documentary film, television, books, comic books, magazines, sheet music and recordings, theme parks, business, and the over-all Disney vision. A bibliographic essay examines sources of Disney scholarship, including a listing of resources available at the Walt Disney Archives in Burbank, California. Appendices provide a Disney chronology, Disney film and television credits, Disney's awards, and a listing of theme parks.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book does two jobs at once. It provides an informative biography that gives the reader an idea of where Disney, the man, came from and how he achieved his dreams. It also provides an annotated tally sheet of all Disney's artistic and business accomplishments. By exploring Disney's huge impact on American mass media and popular culture (from his courageous start as an animator, to his theme parks) the author gives historic context to the entire Disney vision that held the man's many exploits together.
