    Description

    Mickey's Nightmare (United Artists, 1932). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The most sought after movie posters, other than those from the horror films of the 1930s, are the Mickey Mouse cartoon one sheets created by United Artists from 1932 to 1933. United Artists produced thirteen individual Mickey Mouse one sheets before they went to a stock format from late 1933 to 1937. These thirteen one sheets are considered to be among the "Holy Grails" of the hobby. One of the best of these posters, Mickey's Nightmare, was also the first; released in August 1932. When United Artists took over distribution of Disney's cartoons, they decided to produce a full color one sheet as opposed to the monotone sheets produced by Columbia. Some collectors feel that this poster is one of the best of these because Mickey is shown not once, but nine times! There are three copies of this poster known to exist. This is the better of the two in private collections, and has been placed on linen to replace the upper right and lower left corners which had been torn off within the white borders. There is also minor color touch to the fold lines with a bit more to the white area of the center point. Heritage is proud to offer this spectacular one sheet that will appeal to collectors of Disneyana, movie posters, animation, and Americana. It has had the linen trimmed up to the edge of the poster. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
