Donald! Oh Donald!
When we hear Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" we think of a graduation ceremony.
Donald, where are ya?
Actually, Elgar composed it for many kinds of solemn events.
This march inspired the Disney artists to recreate the age old story...
Right after the final credits, you hear Steve Martin's voice, wondering out loud if he's still on camera, then realizes it's the end of the movie. He then asks the audience, 'Can I have a ride home?' See more
