A trip to Disneyland's Frontierland, where Walt Disney himself (in cowboy attire and saying things like 'pardner') introduces the anniversary floor-show at the Golden Horseshoe Saloon. Betty Taylor is the energetic mistress of ceremonies, there are rowdy cowboys and comedians, plus Annette Funicello in an extended cameo singing the pretty "Lantern Song", the jumpy "Mr. Piano Man", and the hilariously dumb "Buffalo Round-Up" (which really has the on-screen audience in stitches). Ed Wynn, sitting in the box seats, gets pulled up on-stage (he's in on the joke). The camera-work is of the point-and-shoot variety, but the show is still quite pleasant if overloaded with corny vaudeville shtick. Released theatrically (!), this would make a fun double-bill with "Disneyland After Dark" for the Walt Disney completist.
