The works of beloved genius Walt Disney have defined many of our childhoods. As a constant innovator who produced numerous classics, Disney received a staggering 59 Academy Award nominations and brought home the gold 22 times. His legacy can still be felt today. The company that bears his name has become a media juggernaut enveloping every major entertainment studio in its path.

But was Disneys rise to power as squeaky clean as his corporate image would have us believe?
