Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse His Life and Times
In 1982 a little mouse with a squeaky voice made an impressive debut in the movie Steamboat Willie. The public loved him immediately. Soon Mickey was appearing in movie after movie - singing, dancing, laughing, and having spine-tingling adventures in over 130 movies so far. He became the hero of comic strips, comic books and annuals. He appeared on stage and made records. He hosted the famous Mickey Mouse Club television shows. He is the official host of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. He keeps busy even today, taking on such new enterprises as music videos and computer games. The most successfully merchandised film star ever, Mickey has become an international figure of young, fantasy and fun.
Surprisingly, no previous book has ever covered all aspects of Mickey's life and career. And what a career it has been! He has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, made some of the most critically acclaimed and beloved movies. He cheered people in the grips of a Depression, inspired people during times of war.
Packed with action and excitement and numerous lively illustrations, this book covers in comprehensive detail Mickey's origins and creators, his physical and psychological make-up, relationships with other Disney stars, film performances and publications, as well as his important role in merchandising and as hero of the Mickey Mouse Clubs. Acclaimed as one of the most instantly recognisable symbols of the 20th century, here at last Mickey Mouse receives the book tribute he has so long deserved.
