Home movies at Disneyland, 1956

by Trevor May | 20th August 2009 | Disney Movies Retro | 1 comment

Jeff Altman, an assistant film colourist, has been restoring a bunch of his grandfather’s old 16mm home movies — including this absolute gem of a family vacation to Disneyland in 1956, a year after the park opened.

What’s amazing is not only the image quality, but that they managed to capture Walt Disney himself (shaking hands with Jeff’s grandmother, no less). Superb! (via The Disney Blog)

    Re-coloured 16mm home movies of Disneyland, 1956: Reminds me a little of Pleasure Island from Pinocchio.
