Pictures of Walt Disney

Walt Disney, Most Successful Man in Hollywood

Walt Disney won more awards of just about every type in Hollywood history, but there's a lot more to the man's legacy than awards. Since so many films on this site are due to him and his vision, I felt the least I could do was put up a few pictures of the man. Everybody knows the basic story of Walt Disney, so I'm not going to ramble on about the most successful man in the history of Hollywood.

So, here we go.
