Reel Walt: The Man Behind the Myth

I think this was the best documentary I've ever seen about Walt Disney - it had a lot of video footage that I've never seen, and some stories I'd never heard. The date stamp is 2001 - why I've never seen it before is beyond me. It must have recently been updated because there is a small blurb near the end about the Walt Disney Family Museum, which opened in 2009.

Please try to see it sometime! I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Walt: The Man Behind the Myth (2001)

"Walt: The Man Behind the Myth" is the definitive filmed biography
of Walt Disney. Based on over 75 interviews with Walt’s closest
friends and collaborators as well as leading historians, "Walt" traces
the life and creative achievements of one of America’s most enduring
icons in entertainment. In addition to the familiar stories of how
Walt conceived of Mickey Mouse and created the first feature-length
animated cartoon with "Snow White," the film also reveals the
lesser-known saga of how the studio faced near-bankruptcy in the wake
of a strike and World War II; how Walt skimped and saved, and even
cashed in his family's life insurance, in order to finance the early
development of Disneyland; how the Disney Studio broke the Hollywood
taboo of early television; and how, in his final days, Walt was fully
devoted to building a city of the future near what is today Walt
Disney World in Orlando, Florida. A new epilogue about the Walt Disney
Family Museum at The Presidio of San Francisco has been added to this
show. "Walt: The Man Behind the Myth" is a production of Pantheon
Studios, Inc. for the Walt Disney Family Foundation

Next scheduled airing: Sunday February 13, 2011 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM on CNBC
