Korte "carriere"
I INTRODUCTION

Walt Disney (1901-1966), American cartoon artist and producer of animated films. Disney founded entertainment giant The Walt Disney Company and is considered the father of the animation industry. During his long career he was nominated for 64 Academy Awards and won 26 Oscars, both records.

II EARLY LIFE AND WORK

Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois. When Disney was a toddler, the family moved to a farm near Marceline, Missouri. He became interested in art at a young age, selling his sketches and drawings to neighbors to earn spending money. During his grammar school years, the family moved to Kansas City. In addition to his regular schoolwork, Disney attended Saturday classes at the Kansas City Art Institute.

When Disney was a teenager the family returned to Chicago, where he studied art and photography at McKinley High School and attended night classes at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. Disney left high school at the age of 16, hoping to fight in World War I (1914-1918). Too young to enlist in any service, he lied about his age and managed to join the Red Cross. After a short stint as an ambulance driver in France, Disney returned to Kansas City where he met commercial artist Ub Iwerks. Disney and Iwerks started their own business, drawing advertisements and illustrations, then launched an animation studio. The business went bankrupt in the early 1920s, however.

Famous 1914-1918 (Famous People who Served in WWI)

Famous tells the Great War stories of twenty of Britain's most respected, best known and even notorious celebrities. They include politicians, actors, writers, an explorer, a sculptor and even a murderer. The generation that grew up in the late 19th Century enlisted enthusiastically in the defence of the country. Many would become household names such as Basil Rathbone, the definitive Sherlock Holmes, AA Milne, creator of Winnie the Pooh, and Arnold Ridley who found fame and public affection as the dour Scotsman Fraser, and the gentle and genial Godfrey, in Dad's Army. From politicians such as Harold Macmillan and Winston Churchill to writers includsing JB Priestley, and JRR Tolkein, from sculptors like Henry Moore, to composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, their fame and influence continue even into the 21st Century. The authors Richard van Emden and Vic Piuk have discovered the exact locations where these celebrities saw action. They tell the story of where CS Lewis was wounded and invalided home, and how Basil Rathbone won the Military Cross for a trench raid (while dressed as a tree). Each story will be examined in detail with pictures taken of the very spot where the actions took place. There are maps of the area that will guide enterprising readers to walk in the footsteps of their heroes.

Beroemde uitspraken:

"In war-time the word patriotism means suppression of truth." - S. Sassoon in 'Memoirs of an Infantry Officer'

“People are machines of forgetfulness” -Henri Barbusse, 1917

"You were between the devil and the deep blue sea. If you go forward, you`ll likely be shot, if you go back you`ll be court-martialled and shot, so what the hell do you do? What can you do? You just go forward because that`s the only bloke you can take your knife in, that`s the bloke you are facing."
- Private W. Hay

"Watching a big boat which was steaming along the horizon, I realised that protesting against the prolongation of the War was about as much use as shouting at the people on board that ship." - Lieutenant. S. Sassoon

"And all this madness, all this rage, all this flaming death of our civilization and our hopes, has been brought about because a set of official gentlemen, living luxurious lives, mostly stupid, and all without imagination or heart, have chosen that it should occur rather than that any one of them should suffer some infinitesimal rebuff to his country`s pride."
- Bertrand Russell, 1914

"We were not making war against Germany, we were being ordered about in the King's war with Germany." - H.G. Wells

Humphrey Bogart



Quote:
Destined in his parents' master plan to go to Yale, in 1917 he was shipped off to the prep school Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, where his father had gone before him.
The budding troublemaker did not much care for it there either, and of course he made no effort to hide his feelings. By the end of his first year it was suggested that he might be happier with another school's curriculum.
What to do next? It was spring 1918 when Humphrey arrived home in New York, and the country was at war. Many young men were anxious to join the fighting overseas and show the Huns a thing or two; to Humphrey Bogart, it sounded like a grand adventure. He would probably get to go to Paris, meet some French girls. . . . Soon after returning from school, Humphrey went down to the receiving ship USS Granite State and joined the Navy, officially ending his formal schooling.
He did not have to travel far for his training; he was ordered to the Naval Reserve training Station in Pelham Park, New York. Graduating with a coxswain rating, he was next ordered to the USS Leviathan (SP-1326), the largest American troopship. The brand-new sailor reported on 27 November, more than two weeks after the war had ended.


Dus nét niet,
wel speelde hij later in "African Queen'

Walter Brennan
- Injured by gas attack during WWI which permanently affected his vocal chords.

Het weerhield hem niet een mooie carrière in Hollywood te krijgen.
