Hollywood Heritage & The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Present: Afternoon @ the Barn - Walt Disney's Disneyland
Join Hollywood Heritage for an afternoon, vintage merriment, and a presentation by Chris Nichols about his new book, Walt Disney's Disneyland! Mr. Nichols will be signing and selling his book after his presentation, so attendees will be among the first to obtain a copy of this exciting new book!
"Walt Disney's Disneyland" is a bountiful visual history that draws on Disney's vast historical collections, private archives, and the golden age of photojournalism to provide unique access to the concept, development, launch, and enjoyment of this sun-drenched oasis of fun and fantasy.
Disneyland documents Walt's earliest inspirations and ideas; the parks extraordinary feats of design and engineering; its grand opening; each of its immersive lands from Main Street, U.S.A., to Tomorrowland; and the park's evolution through the six decades since it opened. It is a treasure trove of Disney original documentation and expertise, with award-winning writer Chris Nichols drawing on his extensive knowledge of both Disneyland and Southern California history to reveal the fascinating tale of the happiest place on Earth.
We will also have a special screening the 1962 romantic comedy "40 Pounds Of Trouble" courtesy of Universal Pictures. The film stars Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette and was the first movie to be shot in and around Disneyland!
Plenty of free parking! Non-members welcome! We hope to see you there!
