Walt Disney Signed 1956 First Edition Biography
Copyright 1956 First Edition
Walt Disney is Without a doubt one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century, but it didn't start that way for him. At 22 years old Walt Disney was fired from one of his first animation jobs, at the Kansas City Star newspaper, for "lacking imagination and having no good ideas."
But Walt didn't let that stop him. He soon after started his own Animation Company and in 1928 created his most famous character, Mickey Mouse. In 1937 he did something unprecedented when he produced the world’s first animated feature film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” which went on to win him an Academy award for “significant screen innovation, which has charmed millions and pioneered a great new entertainment field for motion picture cartoons”.
Walt still holds the record for the most Oscars awarded to one person, now 26. Even after being turned down by over three hundred banks, his ultimate Dream to open a theme park, was realized in 1955, when he opened the world famous Disneyland in Anaheim, California. This ultimately became one of Walt Disney's biggest successes.
