The Best Home Movie Ever
22 December 2014 | by (Anaheim) – See all my reviews

Disneyland Dream is a surprisingly engaging home movie about a visit to Disneyland, Anaheim, in 1956, by the wonderfully American Barstow family. Robbins Barstow's narration (from 1995) is better than competent and he handles the camera much more skillfully than your average amateur. The best thing about the home movie is the view we have of mid-1950s America: the clothing and customs, pre-jet airline travel, side trips to Universal Studios, Santa Catalina Island, Hollywood Boulevard, and Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park. Living in Orange County, I have been to Disneyland countless times in the last 55 years and it is a thrill to see what it looked like a couple of years before my first visit.
