Customer Reviews

A very compelling portrait of the real man behind the name.

Just finished watching all 4 hours of this on PBS. A thorough, thoughtful, balanced look at the life of Walt Disney. Like every visionary, Walt Disney was more layered than the persona the media has presented and this documentary does a wonderful job of examining his life and work through interviews with many who knew and worked with him, and the usual American Experience cadre of "experts", academics, and historians. A big kudos to the Walt Disney Company and the Disney families for cooperating and allowing access to their archives, films, etc, without requiring editorial oversight. The result is a riveting and important visual historical document for the world.


Interesting biography of Walt Disney.
Unfortunately the source material is not always great.
Period film is often grainy and scratched. They could have cleaned things up a bit for this important show. Also felt the interviews were somewhat lacking in content.
Still, I bought a season pass in ITunes and I’m looking forward to part 2. (whenever that is available for download.)


One of the great men in history. Held back by unions and mediocre people but kept doing what he did best... Create!
