MCL 10-07-2013 - Remembering Roy E. Disney with Dave Bossert

Roy E. Disney saved the Walt Disney Company...twice. He was at the center of two memorable boardroom battles in 1984 and again in the early 2000s. Both times the company came out better for it. Tim Callaway interviews longtime Disney animator, director and producer Dave Bossert, who's written a new book about Roy E. Disney that touches on his well-known corporate entanglements but is mostly about his lesser-known personal side and the many people within the Walt Disney Company--particularly in animation--who knew, respected and admired him. It's an insightful look at the man who helped lead the charge to resurrect his father's and uncle's company, and to enable Disney's second golden age of animation.
