What a trip! Roy Disney, TV producer/reporter Tony Perri, a crew of fifty, four classic Disney films ready for their 1st time theatrical release in Russia, and of course, Mickey Mouse. This video is one of three International TV News Transmissions produced by Perri, that made it to thousands of news and entertainment shows around the world, and consequently into the homes of more than 370 million people! This trip with Roy and Mickey represented the FIRST TIME that any Disney film would be shown on the big screen in Russia. Crowds of people lined up outside Moscow theaters to watch Fantasia. Some Russians waited in line for more than 20 hours to buy their movie tickets.
