I stumbled upon this book last week. This autobiography of Yakima Canutt contains a long chapter about his work for Disney. Pure delight for those of you who are interested in Disney's live-action productions.

Speaking of Australia...

In the early 1930s, Disney was first represented in Australia (on the Consumer Products side) by the company John Sands Ltd.

In February 1935, Walt Disney Enterprises established a subsidiary in Sidney and soon after contracted Mr. W.R. Granger, former Sales and Promotion Manager at John Sands, to run it.
