D23 Salutes Richard Sherman
On the eve of the release (a limited release, in Los Angeles and San Francisco) of the boys: the sherman brothers' story, a new documentary created by the Shermans' sons (the Sherman Cousins, one might say), the D23 website has a wonderful salute to Richard Sherman, in which that great songwriter, historian, and human being re-visits Sound Stage 2 (where Mary Poppins was filmed) and 3C 10/11 in the original Animation Building, where the Shermans had their office in the glory days at the Walt Disney Studios. Take a look at this photo from the back of the album cover of the 1967 second-cast (a second cast including Richard Sherman) LP for The Happiest Millionaire, and you can see Richard and Robert (aka Dick and Bob) Sherman posing near the famed Mickey Avenue/Dopey Drive street sign at the studio. Then hurry over to the D23 website (it's free, you know) and reminisce with Richard.
