Yes, I was reading that through "Sleeping Beauty"'s and the "1959 in film"'s Wikipedia pages, so I'm not really sure? It does say the number comes from distributor's share of the gross only. *shrug*

As most people are aware, Sleeping Beauty was considered a failure during its first run. Walt Disney himself would have felt satisfied that at least the future would give it some recognition.

I'm glad that after Walt's passing, the company still give recognition to his films that were considered commercial failures and thus breathed new life into them, granting them the classic status. I only wish Disney would continue to do the same for their more recent films, mainly Hunchback, but even a few others like Treasure Planet. This revisionist history that Disney's last great film before Tangled or Frozen was The Lion King has really hurt their legacy imo.
