First released in December 1937, it was originally dubbed "Disney's Folly" but the premiere received a standing ovation from the audience.

1976 - At the age of 37 years old, Eleanor was alive when on August 4th, a mysterious illness struck an American Legion convention in Philadelphia. Within a week, 25 people had died and 130 people had been hospitalized. It was the first known instance of what came to be called "Legionnaires Disease."
