    Description

    Mickey Mouse Stock Poster (United Artists, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41"). By the early 1930s, several studios had experimented with cartoons in Technicolor's two-color process. In 1932, Technicolor approached Disney with its latest tests on a three-color process that encompassed all the colors of the rainbow. Disney was the only one convinced that the new process would be a real asset to his films; even his brother, Roy, tried to discourage him. But Walt signed a three year exclusivity in the animation field and when his first color short "Flowers and Trees" won an Academy Award it turned into a jackpot for the young pioneer. In February 1935, Disney made his first Technicolor Mickey Mouse cartoon. This gorgeous "stock" poster heralds that event! It has been put on linen and has had work on the two horizontal folds at the left border where a v-shaped area of paper is missing in both fold lines only within the yellow field. In the lower horizontal line, the piece missing is only below the first half of the "M" in Mickey; and in the upper fold line, the paper missing within the fold line comes within 2" of Mickey's right ear. There is a tiny pinpoint of paper loss within Mickey's forehead. There is a tear in the upper right border which extends down into the yellow field. There is a small tear in the lower border which goes from the border into the yellow by 2". The border has had airbrush work, but there is only a very tiny chip within the border. All in all, this poster is a beautiful example, and looks Near Mint! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $13,000 - $18,000.
