This just in from a reader of the blog:

[I am mainly writing about Charles Tranberg's book on the Disney Studio. While it is very interesting and informative (I am halfway through reading it) it is full of errors - factual and editorial.

For example, he calls Oswald, the lucky Rabbit - Osgood - using the name several times - this leaves me rather suspect.

He cites Walt as being the last of Flora and Elias's children, when in fact Ruth was the fifth and last child.

The book is poorly edited, quoting large passages that are not inset into the text, and repeating lines in the text several times.]

Very disturbing! Note that I (Didier Ghez) have not read the book yet.
