Who was the visionary genius who created whole new worlds and made them the happiest places on earth? Walt Disney. He brought to life characters that are now American icons, and retold many traditional fairy tales for new generations. Disney was a pioneer in film animation, and his Mickey Mouse cartoon Steamboat Willie was the first cartoon to have a truly synchronized soundtrack. His Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in 1937, was the first-ever feature-length animated movie and the first to use what was then the most advanced Technicolor film process. While the movie was in production, Disney's rivals called the project "Disney's Folly;" both his wife, Lillian, and brother, Roy, tried to talk him out of doing it. Walt had the last laugh, the first of many more he would have over the years.
