Home movie hero Robbins Barstow writes,
I am the 90-year-old producer of the 1956 family home movie, Disneyland Dream, which you first BoingBoinged nearly two years ago, on April 11, 2008.
I thought you might be interested in knowing that a 1956 "Disneyland Dream" DVD is now available for purchase for $15 plus shipping from Amazon.com, with an added Special Feature on "The Making of Disneyland Dream." It has taken me a long time to get this set up, but the attachment to this email is a flyer I have worked out to let people know about this new DVD availability. "Disneyland Dream" can still be downloaded anytime free from the internet at Archive.org, but from now on the 2009 "Making of D.D." will only be available as part of this for-sale DVD.
This is my first venture into commercial marketing (after 75 years of amateur film making), so I don't know how it will go. But I appreciate your earlier interest.
This is the most delightful historical Disneyland movie I've seen -- including the old TV shows where Walt tours the park. Young Master Barstow was a great film-maker (there's a reason that the Library of Congress added this to the National Film Registry), and the subject is wonderful, My mom and her family had a trip to Disneyland in '56, and my grandfather talked about it to his dying day -- the stuff of legend.
