Disney Movies & Facts

Walt Disney’s distributor, RKO Radio Pictures, had qualms about releasing Dumbo as a 64-minute feature as a major motion picture. They tried to persuade Disney to either cut it to short-subject length, extend it to at least 70 minutes, or have it released as a B picture. Disney stood his ground, and the film was released as an A picture as Disney intended.
