Disney Buys Fox

In 1923, Walt Disney arrived in California with $40, a suitcase, a lot of dreams and little else. William Fox, on the other hand, was a multi-millionaire who owned a chain of movie theaters and the Fox Film Corporation.

Most people in 1923, if told that the company established by one of these men would eventually buyout the company established by the other, would have guessed that it was William Fox’s company that would buy Walt Disney’s company. Of course, today we know it was the opposite. Walt Disney’s Company grew exponentially, making his name known throughout the world. Today, Twentieth Century Fox becomes part of The Walt Disney Company- because anything can be done with just one dream.
