Kansas City also plays a small role in film history as the place where WaltDisney began his animation career (It's said that a mouse in his film studio gave him the inspiration for MickeyMouse). Many of the locals he hired - UbIwerks, Creator/FrizFreleng, [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising]] - went on to successful careers as well.

* Creator/RobertAltman's 1996 film ''Kansas City'' is about...well, the setting is certainly obvious. It emphasizes the crime and the jazz. Altman himself was a Kansas City native.

None of this changes the fact that KC sits in the middle of FlyoverCountry. Hundreds of miles of wheatfields in all directions.

The city is famous in part for its Music/{{jazz}}, in part for its [[UsefulNotes/CuisinesInAmerica barbecue]] and in part for its [[UsefulNotes/TheMafia mafia]]. Kansas City played a small, but not unimportant role in the country's racial drama during the early-to-mid 20th century. Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier, played with the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League before signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Negro League Baseball Museum sits at the famous intersection of 18th and Vine St. where the aforementioned race, crime and music came together.
