From live action films to animated shorts, it’s likely that the breadth of Walt Disney’s achievements will never be surpassed. His imagination and energy, whimsical humor, and love for animation has made his films a quintessential part of the American childhood. The winner of 22 Academy Awards, he is considered one of the most influential Americans to have ever lived - but how many Americans actually know much about Walt Disney’s life? Today on Special Collections we learn more about Disney’s personal life and achievements through the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, California. Our guest today is Kirsten Komoroske, the Executive Director of the museum. Also in today’s episode, learn about Disney’s contribution to both World War I and World War II, despite not fighting in either of them. Reminisce about your childhood with our man-on-the-street segment as we ask people about their favorite Disney memories, and get in on the debate as the Special Collections production team share what their favorite Disney movies, villains, and songs are.
