Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination by Neal Gabler

January 8th, 2015 at 10:30 am

Walt Disney was a true visionary whose desire for escape, iron determination and obsessive perfectionism transformed animation from a novelty to an art form, first with Mickey Mouse and then with his feature films. In his superb biography, Neal Gabler shows us how, over the course of two decades, Disney revolutionized the entertainment industry. Walt Disney is a revelation of both the work and the man-of both the remarkable accomplishment and the hidden life.
