Reading the links that tod gave (thanks tod!) gave me a sense of what a "tortured" (is that the right word?) soul Disney was.
Reminds me of reading Charles Schulz's biography. He had a fear of crowds, and it plagued him all of his life, among other things.
Both men achieved greatness but were suffering inside.
