April 23, 2005 - Walt Disney
After reading this wonderful book about him, I realize that if he had been alive, I would not have anything to fear about being ripped off. He was a wonderful man and if you want to be inspired, read his story. This man, and his brother Roy, performed miracles at a time when things were very difficult for the entire country. He was a caring man of integrity. It is a shame that people in his company didnít maintain that after he was gone. All of a sudden it was all about the bottom line. He wanted only films that were for the whole family.
Recently saw part of a movie on the Disney Channel that was an insult to the name of Walt Disney, to his dreams of good films or his integrity to the public. He would have turned over in his grave. What are they doing to his name?
As much as I would love to have my film produced with a name like Walt Disney (the real Walt Disney) behind it, I am not disappointed that it wasn't accepted. I'm disappointed in the use of Walt's name and a company that represents the corporate world of America.
If you get an opportunity, read An American Original - Walt Disney, a biography written by Bob Thomas.

about Walt Disney
He continues to point the rifle in my direction. Not waiting for a second shot, I immediately run around the car and leap through the hedges into the adjoining yard. As I am running down the drive way, I hear him laughing.
Not funny to me. Especially since my agent had just submitted my screenplay Cancel Christmas to Disney Studios. They lost the first script and my agent sent them a second one. Since then they returned one of the scripts. The other script is still floating around the Disney Studios. Hope this isn't what I feel it is.
JFK Signing 6 new (laws/amendments/?) I was sitting on his desk with a video camera and shot the whole thing. I woke feeling peaceful and accomplished.
