Narrator Saskia Maarleveld's bright, enthusiastic voice adds dimension to Holt's well-researched history of the women behind the men behind Disney Studios' animated features. Usually shunted off to the Ink and Paint department and paid much less than the men, the women fought to break into the male-dominated field at Disney. Maarleveld delivers a fascinating history of the company, its revolutionary advances in filmmaking techniques, and the films that shaped generations. She's outstanding at delivering this group biography highlighting the lives Bianca Majolie, Walt's high school friend; Grace Huntington, whose imagination won her a coveted spot in Disney's story department; artist Sylvia Moberly-Holland; designer Mary Blair, and many more. Maarleveld sounds as captivated by these remarkable women as listeners will be. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
