Born in 1950 and raised on Walt Disney cartoons, animated Fairy Tales and the Mickey Mouse Club, I remember the powerful emotions his productions inspired - including joyful laughter and heart-wrenching tears. Underlying everything was a feeling of goodness and love which penetrated to the core of a person's being.

What a difference after he died in 1966. The worst of his nightmares came to pass and his studio fell into the hands of the predators who'd been circling it from the moment of its conception - the communists, pornographers and money-changers who controlled everything coming out of Hollywood even way back then.
