Here are some very typical (boring?) photos from a small bunch from the summer of 1968. These people could have been in the movie theater watching John Wayne's "True Grit", but they were frightened by his eye patch.
The castle. It's pointy. And it is haunted by the ghost of Paul Lynde. He looks exactly the same as when he played "Dr. Dudley" in "The Munsters".
This would have been a nice picture of the Columbia except that 1/3 of the photo is slurry-coated pavement. Notice the mysterious "Man in White", with his toolbox full of syringes.
"Dutch angles" are used in films when a director wants to impart a feeling of disorientation or unease. Of course I feel disoriented all the time, so this photo makes me feel right at home. New Orleans Square is definitely the least-represented land in all of my Disneyland photo collection, so I'm always happy to include a picture of it, even a wonky example.
