Frozen in Ice Update


Since my other potential book projects are currently in limbo, I have decided to proceed ahead with my Disney book that I introduced a few months ago. I have just finished watching the Disney theatrical films from 1968 and now am venturing into 1969, which is cool since "The Love Bug" is one of my favorite Disney films. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out, but I think it will be good. I will only put it on the shelf if one of the other book projects comes through, since this one would be a self-published deal like my Harvey and Beatles books. More later...

Mark,

So, I assume that this is meant to be a survey of Disney films from the death of Walt through the Eisner ascension?

You are correct, sir!

Mark,

I like the double reference of the title, to:

1. Walt's supposedly being cryenogenically frozen, and

2. The Disney of 1966-1985's "freezing in place" in terms of willingness to innovate and take risks.

I do, too! My original title was going to be "What Would Walt Do?", but someone already wrote a book with that title.
