    Description

    Mickey Mouse Stock Poster (Columbia, c. Early 1930s). One Sheet (28" X 41").
    In 1930, Columbia Pictures bought the Disney contract from Pat Powers of Celebrity Productions with all the rights to the previous films. Disney stayed with that studio until mid-1932 when Walt wanted more money to expand his cartoons and the creative control to do so. He then turned to United Artists, who agreed to his requests. This gorgeous and early stock poster was printed by an "Other Company," Central Show PTG. CO., Mason City, IA. It was no doubt sold to theaters running the shorts with great popularity during this early Columbia period when Mickey still had his "sliced eyes" as they are called. They were gone by 1932 and the United Artist period. This is a very rare poster and only the second copy that we have offered. The poster was previously folded one extra time making for two extra vertical folds. There was some minor fold and edge wear and some slight crossfold wear. There were small clean tears within the vertical fold. This is a beautiful and vibrant copy of an animation gem! Very Fine- on Linen.
