Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The Happy Time (1952) was exactly the kind of film I was looking for - a human comedy about a young boy's coming of age. No melodrama, no murders, no evil wooden puppets! See more »

Trivia:

His father's animation studios was one of the biggest competitors to Walt Disney's studio. Ironically, Disney ended up hiring Richard to direct his studio's first live-action feature, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954). See more »
