How one of Sinclair Lewis's short stories ended up at Disney, and in a film called Fun and Fancy Free, when Sinclair Lewis himself was none of the above, is a great mystery. If you have any information, please join the conversation.

Sinclair Lewis is best known for three novels: Main Street (1920), about stifling conformity in a Minnesota town, Babbit (1922), about a morally bankrupt business man, and Elmer Gantry (1927) the original crooked telemarketer. He was the first writer from the U.S. to win a Nobel Prize in literature.
