Walt: The Man Behind the Myth
Directed by Jean-Pierre Isbouts
From Mickey Mouse to Mary Poppins to Disneyland and beyond, Walt Disney touched the hearts of millions with his special brand of magic.
Inspired by daughter Diane Disney Miller and hosted by Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke, the film features interviews with friends, family, collaborators, and experts, plus home movies.
Dick Van Dyke narrates as those who knew Walt share stories to piece together his personal and professional life, including the creations of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey Mouse, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Bambi, Disneyland, EPCOT (concept), and Disney World.
Through good times and bad, including deep financial problems during World War II, Walt remained a driven innovator and perfectionist at the Studios and a devoted family man at home. Walt: The Man Behind the Myth offers an intimate look at a man whose legacy continues to inspire the world.
Film followed by a group discussion.
