Description:
Orphan's Benefit (RKO, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Mickey Mouse (voiced by Walt Disney) and his pals--Donald Duck, Horace, Goofy, and Clarabelle Cow-decide to stage a benefit for what turns out to be an unruly bunch of orphans. This is a color remake of a 1934 cartoon of the same name which was the first short to pair both Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. In this edition Donald is his known irascible self as his slow burn takes control with an audience of brat mice! Despite his earnest efforts to entertain the children with nursery rhymes, Donald is mercilessly heckled. Eventually, the orphans send a parade of bricks and eggs on balloons over him and use slingshots to drop them on his head. The bright, well preserved one sheet offered here features Mickey playing piano while Donald reacts to the ridiculing audience. Signs of light handling include pinholes in the borders and background, edge wear, some fold wear and a small tear with paper tape on the verso, light wrinkling and corner bends. The gorgeous colors on this pretty poster, a first time offer from Heritage, makes this a scarce and fantastic piece for the devoted Disney collector! Fine/Very Fine.
