A short video about "Growing up in Disneyland," a biography about one of America's beloved movie and TV stars - Don DeFore - and his son Ron's autobiography of his life growing up in a celebrity family. The book's title is a metaphor for his life and is literal, as his father was the only person to own a concession in Disneyland displaying their name, "Don DeFore's Silver Banjo Barbecue" restaurant in Frontierland.
Ron DeFore's life in a celebrity family as well as his father's
many starring roles in feature films, TV, radio, and Broadway.
More than a TV/movie star - as President of the TV Academy, Don DeFore sold the first nationally televised Emmy Awards Show to NBC in 1954!
