Read full description of the books:
Entertaining, but ultimately disappointing biography of an obviously flawed man. The description promised intrigues into Disney's sexual inadequacies, but was rather disappointing in that regard. The book also relies far too much on the testimonies of disgruntled former employees, who spread incorrect rumors like Disney wearing a Goldwater button when presented with a Medal of Freedom by LBJ (which is false). The book should have featured more details on Disney's ratting out animators to HUAC to retaliate against union agitators, which is the REAL reason Disney was a "dark prince" in Hollywood.
The book does, however, feature one of the most amusing anecdotes I've read in a long time...
"For the film's (Pinocchio) New York premiere, Walt hired eleven midgets dressed in Pinocchio outfits and ordered them to frisk about on the roof of the theater marquee. At lunchtime, food and refreshments were passed up to them, including, without Disney's knowledge, a couple of quarts of liquor. By three o'clock that afternoon things got so out of hand an amused crowd was regaled by the spectacle of eleven stark-naked midgets belching noisily and enjoying a crap game atop the Broadway marquee. Police with ladders were called to remove them in pillowcases. Walt decided not to duplicate these festivities in other cities."
