Critic reviews for Walt Disney (Part One)
The program is a must for anyone interested in Disney films and theme parks.
PBS tries and in very large part succeeds in encapsulating this extraordinary pathfinder in "Walt Disney," an ambitious two-part, four-hour documentary airing under the prestigious American Experience banner.
That Colt delivers neither a mushy love letter nor a hatchet job likely will leave viewers at the extremes with a portrait they didn't quite expect.
The best thing about "Walt Disney" is the visual cornucopia it offers: not just clips from Disney films, but also news photos, newsreel footage, and home movies.
At four hours, "Walt Disney" is, yes, long, but it never drags. Anyone who has enjoyed a Disney movie should enjoy delving into Walt's own story.
