Author Bio

Robin Allan lectures in film, drama, and English at Inter Theatre in Derbyshire, U. K. He has published a number of articles on Disney and two children’s books.


"There is no more competent researcher to handle this subject than Allan, who has dedicated most of his life to studying Disney. He combines meticulous research . . . with scrupulous attention to detail and accuracy and a lively, anecdote-strewn account to give a fascinating new dimension to Disney and his work. Including hundreds of beautifully reproduced color and black-and-white illustrations and a 20-page bibliography, this book is a welcome addition to the literature on the booming field of animation." —Choice , July 2000
