The Walt Disney Family Museum helped kick off the TCM 2011 Classic Film Festival with a screening of Walt’s earliest surviving animated shorts, the Laugh-O-Grams, presented in partnership with the Museum of Modern Art. The Laugh-O-Grams will have a special repeat screening on Sunday at 5:45 pm.
Over the next couple of days, TCM will honor Disney’s Musical Legacy with theatre screenings of Fantasia; Silly Symphonies (selected short subjects hosted by Leonard Maltin); and the Hayley Mills / Sherman Brothers 1963 classic, Summer Magic.
In honor of the TCM Film Fest retrospective of the films and music of Disney, 1510 THE SPA will rebroadcast an encore presentation of the Forgotten Hollywoood Radio Show’s tribute to this pioneering innovator of animation. The program will air TODAY at 3pm. If you live outside the broadcast area, you can click on the link below to listen to this wonderful hour of Disney we originally aired a few months ago. WALT DISNEY
We’ll spend time looking at Walt Disney’s early career, embrace his song contributions during Hollywood’s Golden Age, examine his relationship with the talented composers of his animated films and television shows, and enjoy the memorable tunes featured at his theme parks.
If you can’t attend the weekend film fest, this is the next best opportunity to enjoy the MAGIC of Walt Disney.
Until next time> “never forget”
