Walt & El Groupo
Walt & El Groupo looks into a difficult period of time for the Disney Studios. The South American goodwill tour produced two features: Saludos Amigos and the Three Caballeros.
This film was beautifully done. I loved the way the film makers tied the vintage photos, film footage, and images from today. There were fabulous shots of beautiful inspiration art work (including many of Mary Blair's developing signature style). I learned a lot I didn't know from this film. Any Disney fan will enjoy the the history and art featured throughout. Plus, we each got a great pin featuring the movie poster (It is limited edition 1,000).
