Sold Out! Call for availability! After a brief yearlong stint at MGM, Ellenshaw left in 1947 upon receiving a call to work for Walt Disney Studios on the film, "Treasure Island". As it turned out, his partnership with Disney would last over thirty years and earn him five Oscar nominations. For his work on "Mary Poppins" in which he recreated scenes of Edwardian London in 102 different mattes, he won an Academy Award. Walt Disney became Ellenshaw's mentor and friend, spurring him on continually to perfect his craft and push the creative envelope. "Walt was the dominant figure in my life for all those years," he wrote years later. "He talked to me as a father would. I cherished our relationship." However, after Walt Disney passed away in 1968, making movies wasn't the same anymore. "After Walt was gone, things were different," he wrote in his autobiography. "I ceased to be as interested in film making."
