    Disney's Robert Broughton Dies

    January 30, 2009

    Longtime Disney camera operator Robert Broughton has died at the age of 91, according to an obituary in the POST-BULLETIN in Rochester, Minnesota. Broughton passed away January 19 in a nursing home in Rochester.

    In 1937, Broughton started his 45-year career with Walt Disney Studios, working as a camera operator, then supervisor of special photographic effects on almost every film the studio did from SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937) to THE BLACK HOLE (1979). He was honored as a Disney legend in 2001.

    According to Broughton's Disney Legends page, his job was to create spectacular effects in a subtle way. For instance, in MARY POPPINS, he helped Dick Van Dyke dance with animated penguins by using Color Traveling Matte Composite Cinematography, an award-winning technology that combined live-action and animated actors.

    "If it looked like we doctored up a scene," he recalled, "we were a failure. Our effects weren't supposed to be obvious."

    After retiring in 1982, he remained Disney's greatest cheerleader while coordinating the studio's retiree club The Golden Ears for 15 years.

    Thank you Robert Broughton for all you have done behind the camera in order to make Disney magic POP before our eyes. Your work stands as a benchmark for the film industry. All of your movies will remain beloved for decades if not centuries to come. Snow White, Mary Poppins, the Dark Hole and your entire litegy have made an indelibly wonderful impression upon this little heart of mine.

    Up to the highest height
    Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
    Up through the atmosphere
    Up where the air is clear
    With your hand holding tight to the string of a kite
    To Boldly Go Where No MiceChatter Has Gone Before!
