He was one of Disney's Nine Old Men for his knowledge and understanding of visual aesthetics, the famed core animators of Disney animated films.Marc was one of a limited number of Premiere Disney Animators. Walt Disney called them his nine-old-men. Which is a comment to-wards their wisdom and creativity because he trusted them with all of the animation as he got involved in other projects. Marc's career at the Disney Company encompasses 50 years of creativity.As a Feature Animator starting in the 1930's he developed the characters of Snow White and Bambi & Thumper. During the 1940's he became the man to goto when drawing female characters such as Alice and Cinderella. In the 1950's he drew Tinker bell for Peter Pan. He finished his animation career at Disney by drawing Briar Rose & Maleficent for Sleeping Beauty and Cruela de Vil for 101 Dalmatians. After retiring from feature Animation in the 1960s he moved over to WED (Walter Elias Disney) imagineering which was the division in charge of creating all of the Disney theme park attractions. He used his artistic talents to integrate his animation skills into the physical world. He was integral in creating and developing Disneyland attractions like the Pirate robots in Pirates of the Caribbean & Ghosts in The Haunted Mansion with their Audio Animatronics."
