Pinocchio: The Making of the Disney Epic: Disney

In 1940, Walt Disney released his second feature film: Pinocchio, based on Carlo Collodi's 1883 Italian children's novel. The film was groundbreaking: from achievements in animation and sound effects to establishing a pattern for Disney filmmaking that survives to this day. It was the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award (in fact, it won two) and is now considered one of the finest Disney films ever made, even earning a place on the roster of the National Film Registry. This lavishly illustrated book's in-depth exploration also includes a foreword by John Canemaker and a special chapter by noted film scholar Russell Merritt.
