In a hilarious bit of news from New York Magazine, we learn how Disney’s own Don Quixote (and sometime involuntary editor), Michael Eisner, not only tried to arm-twist James Stewart long after the Disney chief had withdrawn his support for the upcoming, unflattering, look at how the most dysfunctional movie studio actually works: Our favorite part so far of “Disney War” is how Eisner suggested that the on-air wife of deceased actor John Ritter become pregnant on the show after his real-life death; (aww, that takes us back to L.A. creative meetings of yore.) Apparently, Eisner’s people didn’t agree. Because it might raise “taste issues.” Where do you people think you are, PBS?
