Without Roy, the world might never have known Walt. As his younger brother Walt Disney dreamed, drew, and imagined, Roy O. Disney stayed in the shadows, forming an empire. A brilliant financier and businessman, Roy helped turn Walt Disney's dreams into reality, building the company that bears his brother's name. Closer than the Warners or the Gershwins, Roy and Walt's lifelong partnership had its stormy moments, but neither of them ever wavered from their joint goal of producing high-quality family entertainment. While Walt's pen gave birth to Mickey Mouse, Roy founded the Buena Vista Distribution Company, brought Disneyland to a fledgling medium called television, and pioneered a merchandising business that would put Mickey on shelves from Brooklyn to Beijing

8 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bing Crosby. No performer will ever be remembered with more affection. For over forty years, this golden-voiced crooner delighted the world with his easy charm and graceful style. He made "White Christmas" a holiday tradition. His "Road" movies with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour are classics of zany comedy. He raised spirits during the Depression, entertained our soldiers during the war, and consistently reassures us that life is a joy and the virtue will be rewarded. Bing's popularity has endured through three generations. And no one remembers him with more affection than author/journalist Bob Thomas in this joyous memoir of Crosby's career and life. You can share again the special moments of the great Bing Crosby's remarkable career. Filled with many rare photographs and anecdotes of Bing, his family, and friends, and featuring an illustrated filmography and a list of his greatest hits, The One and Only Bing is an admiring tribute to an unparalleled singer, a fine actor, and a great man
