I never realized before that Bridges was in so many turkeys. Good actor though.

In the book "Disney Wars," they mention a stock holders meeting where the subject of buying Pixar for some obscenely low price (I think $10 million). One man on the dias was an old guy who actually knew Walt. He kept saying; "This is something Walt would never do." I wished I could have spoken with him because I'd like to bring up some stuff.

Walt went to sound when no one (including Walt) was using sound.
He went to color when everyone else was doing black and white.
He made features when everyone else said it was a foolish idea and he would lose his shirt.

Walt made an industry out of doing what Walt had never done!
OTOH, letting Pixar remain independent for so long gave us a run of pictures we might not have had if Eisner had held the whip!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"
