Walt and the King of the Leprechauns
Of course Walt didn't write the article, in fact it reads like a virtual transcript from his TV segment titled I Captured The King Of The Leprechauns which can be seen as a special feature on the Darby O'Gill and the Little People DVD.
I have something of a soft spot for this Disney live action film and from this vantage point in time it's a bit odd seeing 'James Bond' singing. OK Sean Connery's first apprearance as Bond was still about 4 years away.
Here's a bit of trivia, Walt was apparently friends with Albert R Broccoli, the producer of the Bond films. He also reportedly went to Walt for advice when he was producing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
