Walt Disney began as a cartoonist in Kansas City in the 1920s, with partner Ub Iwerks (1901-71). Walt, Iwerks and Walt's brother Roy Disney ended up in Hollywood in 1923, and made their fame on the strength of Mickey Mouse (first appearing in 1928) and Silly Symphonies (1929). Walt was the boss, and the studio moved from short films into much-acclaimed animated features such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Bambi (1942). Later, Walt Disney expanded into live-action features like Treasure Island (1951), Old Yeller (1957) and Mary Poppins (1964), and then into television -- the family-friendly variety program The Wonderful World of Disney was a prime-time staple from 1954-83. In 1955 Disney opened a theme park, Disneyland, in Anaheim, California; it was an immediate hit and became the public flagship of the Disney empire. Other Disney theme parks have since opened in global locations like Florida, Tokyo, France and Hong Kong. The Disney empire also grew to include Disney Radio and TV's The Disney Channel, which launched the careers of teen stars like Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. Walt Disney died of cancer in 1966, but during his life his studios won 48 Academy Awards. The book has been autographed on the title page by Walt Disney with a fountain pen in green....................BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
