The American Experience tries to get at the heart and soul of the brilliant entertainment innovator who became a brand. Walt was able to encourage innovative technology and marry it to art in a truly groundbreaking way. If it was also a backbreaking way for his staff, well, that is the high price we often pay for genius. "Why would I want to be president?" Walt said, "I'm the King of Disneyland." What makes this documentary oh so very special is that American Experience was allowed into the Disney archives. See EXCLUSIVE footage from the documentary which airs on PBS tonight and Tuesday 9/14 and 9/15.
Opening under cover of night somewhere in Paris, four stories beneath la rue, a secret subterranean gallery in a sealed tunnel appears suddenly. While activity on the street overhead is hectic and dense with cars, trucks and pedestrians, the dry dust is ankle-high here in this darkened, silent morgue—its cool, dank air now permeated with fresh aerosol. The Underbelly has been here, and if you discover this curated collection of Street Art and graffiti in the chilled dim light, you are officially lost. And lucky.
