[First Presidency letter to Roy Disney]
We have been most earnestly grateful for the use of this footage [a clip from "Fantasia"], and our need for it is urgent and will continue to be so into the future as far as we can foresee. For your information, this brief excerpt is used without identification in small restricted instruction classes, in which it introduces a discussion on the creation of the earth. The public is never invited to these classes; no publicity is ever given, and no admission charge is ever made. This most excellent footage has become inseparably a part of the brief introduction to this instruction in establishing a mood of reverence and awe for the Creator's work.
