Disney Legend Marc Davis in his own words: This week, on the centennial of his birth, the Mousetalgia team presents a special salute to Marc Davis, one of Walt Disney’s “Nine Old Men” and one of the most influential Imagineers to ever work for WED Enterprises.

Finally, we welcome Disney Legend Alice Davis back to the show to share her own thoughts about Marc’s life and work and her time with Marc, and to offer some tips about having a lasting, loving marriage.
