Predicting the future is always risky. But it's probably safe to say that at least a few historians will one day speak of the 20th century as America's "Disney era". (23) Today, it's certainly difficult to think of any other single thing that represents modern America as powerfully as the company that created Mickey Mouse. Globally, brands like Coca-Cola and McDonalds may be more widely-known, but neither represents 20th-century America in quite the same way as Disney.

The reasons for Disney's success are varied and numerous, but ultimately the credit belongs to one person—the man who created the cartoon and built the company from nothing, Walt Disney. Ironically, he could not draw particularly well. But he was a genius in plenty of other respects. In business, his greatest skills were his insight and his management ability. (24) But what really distinguished Disney was his ability to identify with his audiences. Disney always made sure his films championed the "little guy", and made him feel proud to be American. This was achieved by creating characters that reflected the hopes and fears of ordinary people.

Disney's another great virtue was the fact that his company—unlike other big corporations—had a human face. (25) He was also regarded as a great patriot because not only did his cartoons celebrate America, but, during World War II, studios made training films for American soldiers. The reality, of course, was less idyllic. As the public would later learn, Disney's patriotism had an unpleasant side. He agreed to work for the FBI as a mole, identifying and spying on colleagues whom he suspected.

By the time he died in 1966, Walt Disney was an icon like Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers. To business people and filmmakers, he was a role model; to the public at large, he was "Uncle Walt"——the man who had entertained them all their lives, the man who represented them all their lives, the man who represented all that was good about America.

23. What is the most powerful thing that represents modern America according to the lecture?

24. What makes Walt Disney really extraordinary?

25. Why Walt Disney was regarded as a patriot?

参考答案:

【小题23】C

【小题24】C

【小题25】A

习题解析:

【小题23】听力原文中明确提到 Today, it's certainly difficult to think of any other single thing that represents modem America as powerfully as the company that created Mickey Mouse.由此可知演讲人认为很难找到任何能够比创造了米老鼠的那家公司更能代表现代美国的其他东西了。而创造了米老鼠的这家公司就是迪士尼,故选项 C 为答案。

【小题24】听力原文中明确提到 But what really distinguished Disney was his ability to identify with his audiences.由此可知真正让迪士尼与众不同的是他能够与观众产生共鸣的能力,故选项 C 为答案。

【小题25】听力原文中明确提到 He was also regarded as a great patriot because not only did his cartoons celebrate America, but, during World War II, studios made training films for American soldiers.由此可知,迪士尼之所以被看作是伟大的爱国主义者不仅是因为他创作卡通来赞美美国,还因为在二战期间他为美国士兵拍摄了培训用的影片。故选项 A 为答案。其他三项在听力原文中都有提到,但并不是迪士尼被称为爱国主义者的原因。
