Fun Facts Week: Roy's Horror

While Walt Disney came up with all the ideas and dreams, his brother Roy was responsible for finding the money to finance the studio's projects. This often put the Brothers at odds- Roy had doubted the success of Mickey Mouse, Snow White, DISNEYLAND, the Matterhorn, etc...


Roy wanted to show his brother that he could also be involved in creative pursuits, so he separately financed a slate of low budget sci-fi films. The films failed at the box office, making Roy's foray into the creative side of things short lived.
