HOW DISNEY KILLED AN OWL AND BUILT AT THIS CAREER

Walt Disney was obsessed with death. So, at least, his biographers often say, linking the numerous – and tragic – deaths of animals in Disney films to a traumatic episode from the childhood of Disney himself. In the late 1900s, when Walt was either seven or eight years old, he killed an owl. Suffering in the wilderness of Missouri from the loneliness and beatings of his father, Walt dreamed of a pet, and the dream almost came true when one day in the dark thickets of the garden he discovered a half-sleeping owl and dragged her home. Crazy from daylight, the bird suddenly attacked Walt, and he, either frightened or angry, trampled the owl to death. The event was a turning point in Walt’s life: “It seems that after that owl, tenderness for animals arose in me.” Tenderness, which was subsequently monetized. Continue reading

Disneyland series

In 1954, the Disney Company began to produce television programs, becoming one of the pioneers of first black and white, and then color television in the United States. The first television hit from Disney was the Disneyland series, which, having changed its name several times, lasted 29 years on the screens of America, and it was shown exclusively in prime time. A year later, the debut of the famous Mickey Mouse Club show took place, in which many future stars of American show business took their first steps.

However, gradually the talent of Walt Disney became closely within the film and television business. A new field for activity was suggested to him by his father’s experience. Walking with his daughters, Walt often went to zoos, carnivals, and other entertainment events. While the children rode on the carousels, the father Continue reading

Beginning of the Mickey Mouse era

After the loss of Oswald, Disney had no choice but to come up with a new star for his cartoons. So the famous mouse Mickey Mouse was born (“Mortimer Mouse called him first, but my wife Lillian didn’t like this name, and she offered to name him Mickey. I couldn’t refuse her such a trifle – that’s how Mickey Mouse came into being, which brought worldwide fame to my company, ”Disney recalled.), suspiciously looking like his eldest brother rabbit. Disney himself and the main artist of his studio, Ab Iverks, took part in its creation.
However, the studio could not sell the first two cartoons with the participation of Mickey Mouse: they were dumb, and sound already came to the cinema. Cartoons were created quite quickly for the studios of that time, in addition, we must not forget that the Disney studio was partly artisanal. As soon as sound cinema appeared in 1927, Walt immediately adopted the experience of his fellow cinematographers and began voicing cartoons. The third film of the series (already with sound) was released on November 18, 1928, and this day marked the beginning of the Continue reading
