    Other projects like Disneyland.

    Well, yes. The other interruption was World War II. I should have stated the question as "From Walt's concept to announcement of Darby O'Gill and the Little People, there was a delay caused by what?"

    Points for all of them.

    James, Brian, all right, except for number six. I'll give a hint: "I love wrong - - - - - - -.

    Oh, and Sandy's job was technically a waitress at a diner... She wanted to be a fashion designer, but was not yet a success at that - this movie was just on tv
