Disc 2 : The Life and Times of Walt Disney: Understanding Walt's 1899 Ethical Default Position, by Geoff Botkin (45:21)
Right up until Walt Disney's death, the nineteenth century culture of small town America was very dear to his heart, and this ideal served as his touchstone during the cultural turmoil and decline of the twentieth century. In the small community of Marceline, Missouri, Walt was shaped by sensibilities of grateful immigrants, industrious farmers, and conscientious schoolmasters. Veteran filmmaker Geoff Botkin explores Disney's nineteenth century values-what he terms as "Walt's ethical default position"-and makes this observation that only by understanding Disney's core commitments will modern filmmakers be able to rightly understand his cultural achievements and legacy.
The Life and Times of Walt Disney-Understanding Walt's 1899 Ethical Default Position (41:35)
