I saw this special and loved it so much that I showed my mom who is possibly a bigger Walt Disney fan than I am. She was as thoroughly fascinated as I was watching it and had to have it so I bought the DVD for her as a gift. She was so excited to get it and has already seen it a handful of times. Walt Disney is timeless and never gets old with anything that he touches, in both life and death. This was an amazing documentary and a treat I would insist others see.

Never really covered his tobacco issue

Walt killed him self smoking. He chain smoked, yet every picture provided by WDC has the cigarette photo shopped out. His smoking was only slightly referred and was glossed over.

Walt Disney was the best!!!!

Comments about PBS American Experience: Walt Disney DVD:

I love anything about Walt Disney. I was teaching the 5th grade class back in Dec. 1966 when Walt Disney died. We were all upset, so I had the children write a letter to Walt's family with a sympathy note and what he meant to them. The family was touched and sent a beautiful letter in return. I have it hanging on my wall. Went on a Disney cruise about 1 year ago and it was super.

The most in depth look at Disney. Both men, and the machine.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Walt Disney DVD:

I have seen many Disney documentaries. But this is a completely unbiased view of Disney's struggles and triumphs. It has considerable photographic and video content that I have not seen prior. The trials and tribulations of Walt, Roy and Eb's efforts are amazing. The struggles they faced, whether they were self induced or unintentional, make this documentary my number one story of Disney. Even over the Silver Box set of building Disneyland.
