PBS to air film on Walt Disney on American Experience

PBS and American Experience will air a four-hour, two-night film on Walt Disney this fall. The film “explores the life and legacy of one of America?s most enduring and influential storytellers.”

From the press release:

Directed and produced by Sarah Colt (?Henry Ford,? ?RFK?) and written by Mark Zwonitzer (?JFK,? ?Triangle Fire?), the film features rare archival footage from the Disney vaults, scenes from some of his greatest films, and includes interviews with animators and artists who worked on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Imagineers who helped design Disneyland.

?Walt Disney is an entrepreneurial and cultural icon,? said AMERICAN EXPERIENCE executive producer Mark Samels. ?No single figure shaped American culture in the 20th century more than he.?
