His films and characters inspired the great Disney theme parks. A creative genius, Walt Disney brought love and laughter to children everywhere. Now for the first time, Marc Eliot presents the real Walt Disney.

The author reveals Walt Disneys twenty-five-year association with J. Edgar Hoovers FBI, serving as a Hollywood-based official informant before being promoted to the rank of Special Agent in Charge, rooting out Communists, subversives, and Jews. A lifelong anti-Semite, he absorbed his prejudice from his father, a strict fundamentalist who believed in corporal punishment and forced child labor.

Walt Disneys phobic behavior is examined in detail, as is his obsessive hand-washing, heavy drinking, and sexual inadequacies. Unwilling to accept his fathers violence as a form of love, and unwilling to prove his own identity, he feared he had actually been adopted in infancy and was illegitimate. He spent a lifetime searching for his real mother. Marc Eliot shows how these psycho-sexual conflicts drove Walt to the depths of lifelong despair and how they found expression in his classic animated characters and films, now so deeply embedded in American culture.

In fact, they were created by a man who used the wealth and prestige they gave him to mold a nightmare empire of vengeance and power. Told against a panoramic view of Hollywoods golden age of glamour and backdoor politics, Walt Disney: Hollywoods Dark Prince is a fascinating work that concludes with a look into the Disney empire as it exists today.
