Dumbo and Disney
February 9, 1942, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominates the Disney film, Dumbo, for an Oscar.
Disney’s featured song in Dumbo, Baby Mine, also received an Oscar in the category of Music.
~~Baby mine, don’t you cry…Baby mine, dry your eyes…Rest your head close to my heart…Never to part…Baby of mine~~ Dumbo is considered to be “The most emotional film In Disney history”. It was the first Disney film to be set in America and the first Disney appearances for Sterling Holloway (the Stork) and Verna Felton (Mrs. Jumbo). Both would become regular cast members.
Disney is creating a live-action remake of Dumbo with Tim Burton directing! For fun, did you know when Harry S. Truman visited Disneyland in 1957, he refused to ride the Dumbo attraction; because, Truman, a Democrat, didn’t want to be seen riding in a symbol of the Republican party? LOL!
Disney has backstage tours. Recently added to these tours is a four-hour “Ultimate Disney Classics VIP Tour”. It includes access to at least 10 classic attractions, including: “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Jungle Cruise”, “Dumbo Flying Elephant”, “Small World”, “Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid”, and “Peter Pan’s Flight”. Guests will have also have an audience with Mickey Mouse.
