Special thanks to Frank S. for this submission


  • The above "stinger" which says "In memory of Peter Donald Owen and Daniel Harris" actually does sting. Daniel Harris was my husband who died during the making of the film, his death directly due to their negligence of safety laws. I had asked them to please include his middle name, to read Daniel Duffey Harris, so people would at least be able to look him up an see what a wonderful person he was, and how many loved him. The production company has deliberately covered up evidence and the whole incident, and forbade anyone to speak with me about the last day of his life. So I'm sorry, I'm sure the film is delightful, but the way they have treated us is horrible. People will soon know what really happened. I have no idea who the other guy is, but may he rest in peace.

  • Victoria,
    Wow, I am left speechless by your post. All I can say is that I am very sorry for your loss. I have updated the dedication to reflect his middle name even if that's not exactly how it was displayed. The studios be damned! I have also linked to his online obituary. Thanks for posting here and again, I am sorry for your loss.

    • Thank you so much for your reply and making the change and link. He felt so honored to work on a Tom Hanks film again, after having been the prison minister in The Green Mile, where he made so many friends. I am grateful to have been in the epic love story we had (and still do)! The truth will come out - I'm working on it. Thanks again!

    Update: I saw the flick again today and discovered that there's a new dedication added to the end of the credits.

    "Dedicated to Diane Disney Miller (1933 - 2013)"

    Diane was Walt's older daughter. She's mentioned by name in the movie (Walt promised his daughters that he'd make Mary Poppins into a movie).

    I saw a preview of this film back on November 19. It turns out Diane died that same day, and sometime between then and now her dedication was added to the credits.
