    Hmmm... I read this only for Kevin J Harty's essay "Walt in Sherwood, or the Sheriff of Disneyland: Disney and the Film Legend of Robin Hood" which is a perfectly adequate interpretative survey of Disney's RH films - although I'm not convinced The Rocketeer should've been included.

    I read the preview, and I was not disappointed! The preview was way more amazing than I expected! I cannot wait to read the entire book… It covers everything you could hope for and more… VERY intellectual analysis yet utterly fascinating and captivating…covering Disney-fied history, or 'Distory' as it is called...
