There is hope that we can create a thriving, healthy and abundant world, but we have to do more than hope.

As both a ringmaster and a man, it is all at once awe-inspiring and humbling to look upon the enormity of a life such as Col. John Herriott's. A steep standard he has left, and it is well worth the ascent. In circus, we never say "goodbye," rather we say "see you down the road."

When It Comes to Disney's 101 Dalmatians, the 'de Vil' Is in the Details

Jim Hill | Posted 04.05.2015 | Entertainment
Jim Hill

It was actually Marc Davis' masterful work on the Mistress of All Evil for Sleeping Beauty that led to his being assigned Cruella de Vil. But given that 101 Dalmatians was Walt Disney Animation Studios' first film to be set in a contemporary setting, well, Davis wanted Cruella to be a real departure from everything that he'd done with Maleficent.
