    He also directed The Sword and the Rose and The Story of Robin Hood for Disney too and like Robinson, did a great job with them.

    I'm glad TCM interviewed him for their documentary on live action films but am sad that he will not be able to comment on a future release for some of these titles (Sword to this day still has not ever seen a DVD release).

    Edit: Although Disney themselves did a nice featurette on their films made in England on the Dr. Syn DVD that had some goof footage of him.

    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?
