       "Real stories and fascinating details behind the 
         most intriguing people who have ever lived." 

Greetings Biography Buff, 

Walt Disney is a legend; a folk hero of the 20th century. On 
December 21, 1937, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the first 
full-length animated musical feature premiered. The film 
produced at the unheard cost of $1,499,000 during the depths 
of the Depression, is still considered one of the great feats 
and imperishable monuments of the motion picture industry. This 
week we remember Walt Disney for his imagination, optimism, 
creation, and self-made success in the American tradition.
