    Description

    Hawaiian Holiday (RKO, 1937). Poster (30" X 40").
    In this Disney classic, Mickey Mouse takes the whole gang on vacation to Hawaii. He serenades Minnie with his ukulele, Pluto chases crabs, Donald manages to burn his hula skirt and tail feathers,and Goofy learns to surf. In fact, the cartoon could have been the first in the Goofy series of "How To's". The beautiful thing about this 30x40 is that it captures Walt Disney's two greatest characters on the surfboard, which should make this poster especially appealing to surfing enthusiasts, animation collectors, Disneyana fans and movie poster aficianados. The poster has had minor airbrushing around the edges to restore some minor flaking and chipping. This particular format (30"x 40") is among the rarest size for any Disney poster and, in fact, this is the only copy of this particular poster known to exist. It was printed in eight colors- an expensive process in 1937. Also, during this time, RKO didn't create one sheets for their short subjects so many theatres wouldn't order the 30x40 format making this item or any Disney poster from this era almost impossible to find. Very Fine on Paper.
