Disney's Smoking Ban Means No Smoking for Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks"

Posted: November 17th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
DisneySubmit Comment
One of the more difficult projects that Disney has worked on is "Saving Mr Banks," which is about Walt Disney attempting to make "Mary Poppins." It was very important for the studio to capture its founder correctly, but its ban on showing lit cigarettes in its movies created a problem since Walt was a notorious chain smoker, a habit that was likely the main reason for his lung cancer that took his life in 1966.

After a recent screening, producer Alison Owen spoke about the issue. "They told us there could be no smoking," she explained, adding that the filmmakers had to find creative ways in order to not completely ignore Walt's smoking.

Here's what they came up with... In one scene, Walt (Hanks) is shown putting out a cigarette. Even though the cigarette and the smoke are obscured, it's clear what's going on. It's said that Walt's smoker's cough is also present in the film.

I don't know if they just stick with the "Poppins," but if they go further and show his death, it would be idiotic not to show him smoking. It's like when the told Stan Lee he couldn't make an anti-drug comic because of the rule against showing narcotics.

Selective biopics?!!...bah-humbug!!

Then why f*cking do it in the first place?!!

All the vices, quirks, virtues and/ or faults are what made them who they are...

Misguided f*cks, aren't they?!!
