Walt's People
Talking Disney with the Artists Who Knew Him - Volume 27
Didier Ghez

The Walt’s People series is an oral history of all things Disney, as told by the artists, animators, designers, engineers, and executives who made it happen, from the 1920s through the present.

Walt’s People: Volume 27 features appearances by Joe Alves, Ken Annakin, Harry Archinal, Ron Carman, Randy Cartwright, Eyvind Earle, Ed Ghertner, Joe Grant, Rock Hall, John Hench, Luther Marr, Tom Morris, Dick Morrow, Tadhg Murphy, Paul Torrigino, Larry Watkin, and Mary Wilmar.

Among the hundreds of stories in this volume: TADHG MURPHY shares the memories of his meeting with Walt Disney during the 1946 research trip to Ireland which led to the making of Darby O’Gill and the Little People. MARY WILMAR, wife of cinematographer Hugh Wilmar, remembers how she came face to face with a polar bear during the filming of White Wilderness. KEN ANNAKIN explains how Peter Ellenshaw’s matte paintings for Third Man on the Mountain frightened audiences in Kansas. PAUL TORRIGINO recalls working on Spaceship Earth with the unpredictable Ward Kimball. The entertaining, informative stories in every volume of Walt’s People will please both Disney scholars and eager fans alike.
