The Era Of Mickey Mouse Walter Elias Disney(his full name) is an American film director, actor, producer, screenwriter and, of course, the cartoonist, who founded the worldfamous company “Walt Disney Productions”. Walter Elias Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago. Walt loved to draw in his childhood and his first drawings were done on the wall. He always had a cheerful character, so neighbors and acquaintances loved him. During the First World war sixteen-year-old Disney was volunteered after older brother for the front and served a year driving an ambulance of International Red cross in France. Instead of the coloring of camouflage he painted the car by his pictures. Returning from the war, Walt had the opportunity to take the first step as an artist - in a small advertising shop. This temporary work enriched the Disney’s variety of skills and here he get acquainted with one artist - Yubom Ayverksom, who became his friend and assistant for many years. In 1920, Disney made his first cartoon "Smehogramma”. After going out of this cartoon Walt received many orders on advertising reels. Soon he organized the firm "Smehogramma Corporation" on money of shareholders. But at the first financial difficulties the company was disorganised. Walt had hoped to improve the situation after the going out of the movie "Alice in drawn country." However, all the efforts were at this time in vain. And so, gathering a small amount of money, Disney decided to move to Hollywood. In 1923 a businessman from New York offered to Walt Disney fifteen hundred dollars for a cartoon about Alice , and more over ordered a dozen more such works. Walter worked all days long, he attracted to this work his elder brother Roy, who became then a financial and economic leader. Gradually Disney managed to create a studio «The Walt Disney Company», which then turned into the biggest cinematographic empire. New star of studio was amusing rabbit Oswald, which gained huge popularity. Alas, successful rabbit was ruthlessly stolen from Disney through legally wrong drown up contract. Well, it was instructive – since that time Walter closely followed the rights on his creations. After the loss of Rabbit Oswald was urgently needed a new hero. After the experience with the rabbit, it was clear that a new character will also be a funny beast. It gradually began to take shape the future hero of movies – a mouse. In the 30s years Mickey Mouse was shot in 87 cartoons. Just for a couple of years Mickey Mouse has become a legend of America. In 1925 Walt married Lillian Bounds. In 1933 in the family of Disney was born a daughter Diana Mary and in 1937 the couple adopted a year-old girl, giving her the name Sharon Mae Disney. Walt loved daughters, gave gifts, and often walked with them in the park. During these walks he had the idea to create a place where it would be interesting to both adults and children. This place later became Disneyland. Disneyland has grown by leaps and bounds. Attractions appeared in the park one after another, amazing on a grand scale and ingenuity. Walt started the realization of his dream - the construction of the country, named after him and populated with heroes of his films . On July 17, 1955 Disneyland was opened. It was located at 43 square miles of land just to the South of Hollywood in Anaheim (California). At the opening of the Park gathered 28 thousand people, the next ninety million viewers saw this Grand celebration on TV. At the age of 65 in Burbank on 15 December 1966 died Walter Disney, one of the most talented filmmakers in Hollywood. In 1968 Disney was posthumously awarded by the highest award of the U.S. the congressional Gold medal. Walt Disney's life is a classic American story about the man, who made himself. Maybe the secret of his success was in a simple formula: "I do not make movies just to make money. I make money to make movies” Walt Disney.
