WALT: THE MAN BEHIND THE MYTH (Television Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Walt: The Man Behind the Myth—real entertainment value—tells a more thorough story than Walt Before Mickey. Good to see increased archival footage of Walt Disney and his brother Roy than some documentaries show. Using Dick Van Dyke to narrate absolutely enhanced the pleasing delivery of the biographical information.


Walt Disney’s life more thoroughly documented.
