Jim Korkis is not just releasing one book, but three this holiday season. I mentioned the other two already. Here is the final one!

 Oh no!

Marge Champion, Actress, Dancer and Model for Snow White, Dies at 101

I had the pleasure of interviewing Marge a few years ago. The interview appears in Walt's People - Volume 14.

How I missed the release of this exhibition catalog two years ago is beyond me. I am just glad that I was able to order it yesterday. I can't wait to get it later this week.

 

While this is not technically Disney-related, I know that many of you will love to know that Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol - The Making of the First Animated Christmas Special by Darrell Van Citters is finally back in print.

This book by Graham Allan, Rebecca Cline and Charlie Price is, simply put, unbelievable. At 380 pages, it is massive and contains more than 1,500 photos. It will take you weeks to go through it properly and to admire all of the details (including a few dozen black and white historical photos).

The reaction of my wife when she saw the book on our coffee table was: "Let me go through this page by page." She was blown away, but also totally overwhelmed by the first few pages about Halloween. "This is so fascinating, and there is so much in there, that it will take me at least until Christmas to 'read' this book as it deserves."

In other words: Not for the faint at heart, but definitely a must-have for Disney parks enthusiasts.

I have just received a review copy of The Disney Monorail: Imagineering a Highway in the Sky.

I have yet to read it (although it contains relatively little text) but it is such a visually stunning book, filled to the brim with exciting artwork and photographs, that I can already say that this is a "must-have" and one of the best Disney history books of the year. 

Congratulations to the three authors. This one is a winner!
