Russell: 'Last Words Disney Wrote Were My Name'

Actor KURT RUSSELL has confirmed the last two words movie mogul WALT DISNEY wrote before he died were the ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK star's name. It has long been rumoured that Disney penned 'Kurt' and 'Russell' just before he passed away in 1966. Russell was a child actor signed to the studio at the time. During a recent appearance on US TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 56-year-old Russell confirmed the urban legend as fact. He said, "It's true. I don't know what to make of that. I was taken into his office one time after he died and I was shown that."
