COMING UP! Behind the Scenes on "Treasure Island" with Harrison Ellenshaw, which will take place in our Theater this Saturday, October 9 at 3PM. In the late 1940s, Walt Disney approached Peter Ellenshaw to work on the studio's first live-action feature, Treasure Island. Thus began a professional collaboration and friendship, which lasted over 30 years and 34 films. Learn from Peter's son, Harrison, how his father recreated scenes of England with matte paintings, and also what it was like to work with Walt!
Tickets can be purchased online at www.waltdisney.org. But of course, we want to reward our fans, so "LIKE" The Walt Disney Family Museum on Facebook to learn how to win a pair of tickets to the October 9 event!
