Rare Fletcher Markle Interview of Walt Disney

By Keith Mahne

Many audio and video clips of Walt Disney have pulled sound bytes from a 1963 interview conducted by Fletcher Markle, an actor-announcer-writer-producer-director who had just finished directing Disney’s The Incredible Journey. It’s one of the best interviews of Walt Disney there has ever been. Over the years, I’ve only been able to find short clips of the interview and never in full. Today, however, we have the full interview for your personal enjoyment! Disney Avenue is thrilled to present to you the 1963 Fletcher Markle interview of Walt Disney in its entirety. Enjoy…
