I saw Toby Tyler at a drive-in later that summer and I loved it so much I was sure that someday I would run off and join the circus myself. I also had a glossy book based on the movie and looked at often. Years later, when I was working at Disney studios, I met Kevin Corcoran. He was quite friendly and still had his trademark freckles. I don't remember seeing Gala Day at Disneyland but if I did, I'm sure I was thrilled. I had a Disneyland lunchbox I used to gaze at every day while I ate my half sandwich and Campbell's chicken noodle soup that was kept tepid at best in the miniature thermos. Both Nixon daughters, Pat and Tricia, are in it. March 10, 1960.
The Lost World made big promises, but wasn't very good, in part due to its slashed budget because of the out-of-control Cleopatra which plagued Fox at every turn. Irwin Allen had wanted stop motion monsters but didn't get them. September 1, 1960
I don't know if I've seen The Hound that Thought He was a Raccoon, but I presume at some point one or both of them got into the flour in the kitchen. October 20, 1960.
