Disney, Steve Martin and a Trip with Scotch Tape!

Posted by on January 14, 2009

Hello everyone.

I just wanted to temporarily break our World War I series to focus on something a little more lighthearted. Maybe because it’s January in Ohio and the sunshine just isn’t here, or maybe it’s the snow outside today. In any event, let’s visit Disney–and find Steve Martin.

What follows is a movie, which has been making the media rounds lately, that gives us a time trip back to 1956 and one family’s experiences.  Contest winners of the trip via Scotch Tape, the Barstow family won a trip to Disney and then filmed it from start to finish in color!  The comedian Steve Martin even found himself in the film (or he claims it’s him)!

What a great film!

For some other links, I’ve found a great blog called Gorillas Don’t Blog that has even more classic Disney photos and links.  Here are just a few examples of what you will find:

Now, even though it is still snowing, at least I feel somewhat more energetic!  Have a great day and see you later this week!  Don’t forget to visit the blog as well as the links for more information!
