Movie Details

In the early years of Walt Disney Studios, the company was associated largely, if not exclusively, with animated entertainment. Yet, as time rolled forward -- especially into the 1960s and '70s -- this began to shift. The production entity extended its reach to live-action entertainment, especially comedies, with movies such as The Happiest Millionaire, The Boatniks, The World's Greatest Athlete, and The North Avenue Irregulars. This documentary program focuses on that shift, drawing on interviews with numerous individuals who watched it happen or were involved on some level. Participants include Tim Conway, Roy E. Disney, Michele Lee, Dean Jones, Kurt Russell, and Dick Van Dyke. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
