history was made with the release of first talkie animation film
featuring Mickey Mouse.
was released in an America threatened by spectre of depression and
this cute little character of Disney
managed to cheer up the entire depression generation. The success
of this film carved a permanent spot for animated characters on celluloid
and made Disney
a star in the history of the silver screen.
In somewhere around 1986Winz
told me that I couldn't use my usual nome de plume when I
entered his BBS, since everyone should be anonymous and my - then -
nickname, Scratch, was to familiar. I was on-line and tried, almost in
pain, to come up with another alias. Suddenly my eyes strayed unto an old
framed movie-poster for Steamboat Willieand there I had it! I could never imagine that this nickname would
stay with me for the next ten years and that I would be known among most
of my friends under that name...
