"Everyone remembers him as the creator of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Bambi, Dumbo, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Fantasia. His films and characters inspired the great Disney theme parks. A creative genius, Walt Disney brought love and laughter to children everywhere." "Now for the first time, Marc Eliot presents the real Walt Disney. The author reveals Walt Disney's twenty-five-year association with J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, serving as a Hollywood-based official informant before being promoted to the rank of Special Agent in Charge, rooting out Communists, subversives, and Jews. A lifelong anti-Semite, he absorbed his prejudice from his father, a strict fundamentalist who believed in corporal punishment and forced child labor." "Walt Disney's phobic behavior is examined in detail, as is his obsessive hand-washing, heavy drinking, and sexual inadequacies. Unwilling to accept his father's violence as a form of love, and unwilling to "prove" his own identity, he feared he had actually been adopted in infancy and was illegitimate. He spent a lifetime searching for his real mother." "Marc Eliot shows how these psycho-sexual conflicts drove Walt to the depths of lifelong despair and how they found expression in his "classic" animated characters and films, now so deeply embedded in American culture. In fact, they were created by a man who used the wealth and prestige they gave him to mold a nightmare empire of vengeance and power." "Told against a panoramic view of Hollywood's golden age of glamour and backdoor politics, Walt Disney: Hollywood's Dark Prince is a fascinating work that concludes with a look into the Disney empire as it exists today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

You would have to be naive to think Walt Disney was as perfect as his portrayal over the years. Any man in Hollywood with that much power had to have a dark side. This book tells Walt's story along with all the dark stuff we all want to hear. I don't feel like it sensationalized anything, just told it like it was - warts and all. Overall a very interesting, readable and fascinating book. ( )

The man that brought the world Mickey Mouse and Goofy has been the subject of a number of biographies. Most of these don't cover the dark areas that "Walt Disney: Hollywood's Dark Prince" do.

While not a mudslinging piece, "Hollywood's Dark Prince" covers parts of Uncle Walt's life that didn't get mentioned in "The Musketeers" or "Wide World of Disney", including his father's abusive behaviour towards him, his anti-union activities, including forcing staff to take unpaid leave, claiming the work of others as his, and, most intriguing, the claim that he was actually ten years older than claimed and was the daughter of a Spanish cleaning lady.

Disney also didn't seem to consider his daughters as much chop, not appointing them to the board, thus ensuring that the Disneys lost control of Disney. A complicated fellow, Walt Disney. And if Eliot is right about his Spanish cleaning lady claim, then he is a mysterious chap as well. ( )
