One last word on the Disney controversy ("Team Disney--Flying High in Burbank," by David T. Friendly, July 28): Gary Kanofsky, in his letter Aug. 18, misses the same point as Michael Eisner & Company.
The seven letters that appeared in Calendar (Aug. 4, 11) opposing the current activities at Walt Disney Productions were clear in their underlying message: Disney is not just a movie studio, and the Disney consumer expects more than just films from Disney; there is a great deal more to the overall Disney concept and tradition than movie making.
I don't think any of the writers doubt that Eisner will be able to turn Disney into a high-profit motion picture factory; the question is, does he have any interest in maintaining the integrity of the Disney image while so doing?
In his first year at Disney, Eisner has given a number of interviews. Not once has he made any mention of Walt or Roy Disney. If this is not iconoclastic, I would like to hear from Kanofsky what is.
