Neal Gabler on Walt Disney

November 26, 2006

Neal Gabler spent seven years working on “Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination.”  It’s the first full-length, fully-documented, in-depth biography of this American icon.  Gabler tells Steve Paulson that Walt was greatly influenced by his relationship with his father, and that much of his empire has to do with wish-fulfillment and escape.
