    Hmmm...I think that would be interesting. I mean we have movies on a ton of the presidents, queens etc. Why not the man who started animation as a motion picture?

    Re: Walt Disney (The Movie)

    I wonder how a movie like this would do in theaters? Is there enough mass appeal? Or would it be a direct-to-DVD release? There are so many documentaries about Walt Disney already, would we need a bio-pic on him?

    If you head over to 2719 Hyperion, Jeff Pepper's most recent post is about Bobby Driscoll. I would love to see a movie about him that also worked as a period piece of what was going on at Disney/LA/NYC at the time. I mean this in the best possible way, not some hatched job on how Driscoll was exploited by the studios. But how things really were at the time (especially at Disney) intertwined with the personal trials of a kid who hit bottom and tried to sort out his life.

    Think it all depends on what 'type' of movie it is. If it was just a documentary I don't think it'd do well in theaters but if it was some sensationalized version of his life... something with big name stars and a good bit of fiction or rumor mixed in with fact, it'd probably do well.

    Geeze what does that say about the world we live in. Great now I'm depressed.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Hey, if someone felt compelled enough to make horrible movies about Hoffa and Hoover, why not Disney?
