June 18, 1956: Walt Disney looked mucho tired Saturday ayem, after spending the night at Disneyland readying his new attraction, Tom Sawyer’s Island. It’s another part of Americana come to life, made with the charm and accuracy that bear the Disney trademark. This and the ski ride will “be enough for now,” said Walt about future plans. “All that glitters is not gold. And it takes a lot to run this place.” Disney hosted visiting fourth estaters with a honest-to-goodness Southern fish fry which included catfish flown in from Missouri, hush-puppies and watermelon, you-all … Jim Backus floored scribes at the Navy-UI flag lowering ceremonies of the “Away All Boats” preem. “After watching the press salute,” he observed, “I think I’ll sell my war bonds.” The film and the preem, by the way, set a new high in Armed Services-studio cooperation. Later, at the Moulin Rouge, Spike Jones sat with us and signed “Lawrence Welk” autographs for teeners.
