The Disney Round-Up!

This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our blog Silver Scenes. Looking back on all of the posts my sister Diana and I (Constance) have made over the years, we discovered that Walt Disney films were a common fact, we reviewed quite a large number of Disney productions! We also covered small bios on some Disney Legends, such as Bill Cotter, Marc Davis, and James Algar.

Since we are hosting The 100 Years of Disney Blogathon in honor of Walt Disney Studios' anniversary, we decided to round up all of our Disney posts into one large corral. This way you can browse through and pick and choose which posts you may want to explore.

The Disney Films

If you were to mention the name "Disney" most people would instantly link the thought with "animation"...and rightly so. Disney was a pioneer in the animation field. We thought that there were enough books and articles written about his animated work, but very few about the live-action films that the studio made over the years, so we have always put the spotlight on those, some of which were: 

The Reluctant Dragon (1941)

Rob Roy: The Highland Rogue

The Great Locomotive Chase (1956)

Johnny Tremain (1957)

Perri: A True-Life Adventure (1958)
