October 22, 2017 Record of the Day

Following the success of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1937, Walt Disney followed up in 1940 with “Pinocchio,” the puppet who wanted to become a real boy. Twelve-year old actor Dickie Jones, who had success in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” was the voice of Pinocchio. The film won two Academy Awards, one of which was for best song, “When You Wish upon a Star.” The original soundtrack album, released by Disneyland records, can sell for $250.00 today. “Pinocchio” is just one of the 10,000 soundtracks listed on our Soundtracks CD in Microsoft Word, covering movies, TV shows, and Broadway shows. It’s available in the left hand column.
