How I will miss Michael Eisner—my Moby Dick, my Great White. In a world
where the studios are run by suits, Eisner was an executive who carried
himself like a Hollywood mogul. He didn’t own Disney but, by God, he
acted as though he did. The judge in that shareholder case in Delaware
put it best: Eisner’s conduct was "imperial" and "Machiavellian."
Kim Masters, or Eisner’s Bane in the lost book of middle earth, gets one final dig in on the ex-Disney CEO this week in Slate.
