Fantasia was devleoped from 1939 to 1940. The strike was 1941. My "Fantasia biopic" would fudge the time line to deal with the animators strike. That's why I think Fantasia would be the ideal frame to hang a biopic around. I think it would also be a good story because it has inherant drama and it isn't a formulaic ending. Fantaisa flops and is only re-discovered 20 year later--the strike forever alters the studio and drives Walt into other creative endevors.

When you're dealing with a guy who made pure gold and almost never failed, a biopic has the problem of not being very exciting. By making it about one of his failures (or let's say mild setbacks) you give the story more drama. I think you could also wring some drama from his very early years, but I don't think that would be as interesting and as cinematic as the drama behind Fantasia.

Yes this is utterly fake, but I'd like to see Jason Schwartzman as Walt.

Walt wasn't an anti-semite. Or rather, he was no more anti-semitic than what was considered acceptable for early 20th-Century middle america. He was the 1955 B'Nai Brith Man of the Year...

Well now how interesting.

Ryan Gosling as Walt Disney? Fake Movie Poster Spawns Very Real Desire


Ryan Gosling in a biopic of Walt Disney? From the mind of Ron Howard? Um, yes, please.

Unfortunately (for now, anyway), that movie partnership dream team doesn't just scream "Oscar bait." It screams "gotcha," too.

That's because Walt, the buzziest movie of the year so far (sorry, Hunger Games) doesn't even exist, but instead is the brainchild of an artist who created this zeitgeisty fan-made movie poster.

You paying attention, Hollywood?

The man behind the movement is French graphic artist Pascal Witaszek, who released the image of the fictional movie poster online over the weekend.

Could it happen?

Well, if there's anyone out there who's well-versed in turning fairy-tale dreams into reality, it's the fine folks over at the Mouse House. Add to that Gosling's own past association to the company—he did, after all, get his start on The New Mickey Mouse Club—and his well-documented penchant for trips to Disneyland, and we think you've got a match made in movie heaven.

Come on, Hollywood. Let's make this happen.

FWIW

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/...sney-a-fascist

In 1933, the German American Bund was founded by Fritz Kuhn. Kuhn was evidently quite a character--
he had met Hitler in the early thirties and reportedly was profoundly loathed by the Nazi leader.
An association of German immigrants to America, the Bund had a definite pro-Nazi slant.
Disney animator Art Babbitt claimed his boss had a strong interest in, if not outright sympathy for, the Bund:

In the immediate years before we entered the War there was a small, but fiercely loyal, I suppose legal,
following of the Nazi party . . . There were open meetings, anybody could attend and I wanted to see what was going on myself.
On more than one occasion I observed Walt Disney and [Disney's lawyer] Gunther Lessing there,
along with a lot of prominent Nazi-afflicted Hollywood personalities. Disney was going to meetings all the time.

The German filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl, whose documentaries in the mid-30s had helped to glorify the Nazis,
claimed that "after Kristallnacht [1938], she approached every studio in Hollywood looking for work.
No studio head would even screen her movies except Walt Disney. He told her he admired her work but
if it became known that he was considering hiring her, it would damage his reputation."

For the most part Disney doesn't appear to have had strong political views--
his politics seemed to turn on whatever it took to keep his studio going.
It's likely his interest in the German American Bund sprang from a desire to forge
relationships with Germany for possible film distribution there. On the other hand,
there was a lot of antisemitic feeling in the Disney studio.
While no one can specifically attribute bias to Disney himself,
Jewish people were ready fodder for the animators' gags and Disney approved
every scene in every short the studio made. In one scene in the original version of "The Three Little Pigs,"
the Big Bad Wolf comes to the door dressed as a stereotypical Jewish peddler.
Disney changed the scene after complaints from Jewish groups.
They didn't catch them all, though.
In the short "The Opry House" Mickey Mouse is seen dressed and dancing as a Hasidic Jew.

As much as I'd love to see a Walt Disney biopic, Ron Howard and Disney need to stay far away from it.

From The Disney Bloodline, an expose of Disney's Illuminati background:
OCCULT PORN KING

Walt grew up fascinated with the occult and in an abusive home situation. He was fascinated with cartoons, nature and children. He had an intuitive sense for quality cartoons that would appeal to children. At some point, the syndicate got him indebted to them. At that point he was their man. He owed them a debt that they held over him. In secret, Walt became a porn king. A victim remembers that he was sadistic and enjoyed snuff porn films. His interest in children was far from altruistic.

The Hapsburgs of the 13th Illuminati bloodline had a sex salon in Vienna, where a porn photographer named Felix Salten worked. Felix Salten wrote a book Bambi, which was then translated into English by the infamous communist Whittaker Chambers. The elite were just beginning to form the roots for today’s environmental movement. The book appealed to Disney, because Disney liked animals better than people. In the book, tame animals view humans as gods, while the wild and free animals see humans as demons who they simply called "Him." The book begins with both free and tame animal viewing humans as rightly having dominion over them. In the end, the animals view all humans as simply being on the same level as animals, a vicious animal only fit to be killed.

Disney instructed his animators to make the animals "to be human. I want people to forget they are watching animals." Bambi was to receive a Christ-like manger birth, with the animals hailing him as a "prince." Due to his sexual problems, Walt at one point permitted himself to be subjected to the packing of his genitals in ice for hours at a time. (Elliot, Walt Disney Hollywood’s Dark Prince, p. 83.) Children were instructed to call Walt "Uncle Walt." An example of this were the Mouseketeers. For those who know how mind-control programmers have traditionally liked to be called "uncle" by their child victims, the insistence by Walt to be known as "uncle" is distasteful. From what this author has learned from some sources about Walt’s non-public life as a hidden sadistic porn king, it raises questions about other parts of his life. For instance, Kenneth Anger in his book Hollywood Babylon II, p. 192, "Some animators stated that the boss [Walt Disney] seemed to have fallen in love with the boy. There may be some truth in this..." The boy, who Walt fell in love with, was a small young attractive boy actor named Bobby Driscoll who signed up in 1946 with Disney. He acted in Song of the South, Treasure Island and Bobby’s voice was used in Peter Pan. Bobby Driscoll was very intelligent and attractive. Did Disney help or abuse him? If Disney was such an upbuilding wholesome atmosphere, & this child actor had everything going for him, why did Bobby become a methamphetamine addict at 17 & die within just a few years? Why didn’t his talent & early career lead to something positive in his life?

From those who knew Walt personally one learns that he had an obsession with the buttock part of anatomy. He enjoyed jokes about this part of the anatomy, which he told to his staff quite frequently. The staff edited out many of his crude posterior jokes from cartoon scripts. Two examples that got by the editors are a Christmas special where a little boy is unable to button the drop seat of his pajamas. The little boy’s problem in maintaining his modesty is the running gag of the cartoon. In the end, Santa gives him a champer pot. The 2nd example is the paddling machine used on the wolf in The Three Little Pigs. Numerous Disney cartoons feature buttocks of characters provocatively twitching.
Provocatively twitching buttocks. My God...

The Three Caballeros showed a sexually lecherous Donald Duck who in bad taste tries to make it with latin women.

None of this surprises me. Disney's been talked about in conspiracy literature for years. A psychosexual study of Disney cartoons, features, and TV shows, right up to today's Disney Channel offerings, would be quite instructive. Does anyone with expertise in that subject have the balls to do it?

What's wrong with trying to make it with latin women?

How about Jean Dujardin?



If he could overcome his accent, of course. No one wants to hear him speak.

You could always dub his voice with Klinton Spilsbury. But I hear he chases Latin tail...

That's what he meant.

Bilderbergers figure in as many conspiracy theories as the Illuminati do.
