Top customer reviews
The late John Culhane, who corresponded with Walt Disney and the studio, wrote this behind the scenes account of the making of this classic. He relied on meeting notes from the archives and interviews from the artists as primary sources. He also provides a lot of production artwork and frames from the movie. The book is organized by film segments with an introduction.
Now if only there could be an updated account written by JB Kaufman. There is so much history to Fantasia that wasn't covered such as the unused segments and proposed segments that didn't get passed the storyboard stage.
But Culhane's book is definitely worth reading and is highly recommended for any Disney enthusiast.
Not only is there the artwork but you get the 'quotes' and 'thoughts' of the various artists involved which really gives you a wonderful 'back stage' perspective of all that went into creating this masterpiece.
