The best little 1964 film about CalArts you'll ever see!
I was floored when I found this. Not only is Bageerah (the great Sebastian Cabot) narrating this little gem, it's chock full of great mid-century modern artwork, renderings and concepts. It's produced in that classic Walt Disney live-action educational film style of the 50s and 60s. To add to it, this little beauty was long-lost in the CalArts archives, recently discovered, and posted not too long ago.
The school, established in 1961, was Walt Disney's vision for "different artistic disciplines sharing space under one roof." (One roof meaning one campus, I'm sure.)
The short film was originally presented at the 1964 gala premiere of Mary Poppins. According to a Dick Van Dyke interview on the Mary Poppins 40th Anniversary Edition DVD, Dick wanted to play the part of the old banker at the end of the movie (free of charge) though Walt was unsure about the idea. Then Walt came back and said he could only play the part if he paid $2,000 of his own cash towards the CalArts project. Ha!
