    Description

    Mickey Mouse - Alpine Climbers (United Artists, 1936). Poster (40" X 60").
    Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Pluto climb the Alps. While up top, Donald has a run-in with a mountain goat over some edelweiss and Mickey has a tiff with an eagle over its eggs. One of the eggs hatches, and gives Pluto some trouble (as does the grog a Saint Bernard gives him when he falls into a snowbank). Mickey and Donald are voiced by Walt Disney and Clarence Nash respectively, making this one of Disney's classics from the Golden Age! Offered now is this incredibly scarce 40" X 60" poster for this Disney cartoon short - beautifully hand silk-screened. Due to the fragility of these oversized posters, only a handful are known to have survived, with this being the only known example of this title. The characters are all exquisitely rendered, making this a truly rare and wondrous example! Prior to the excellent restoration, there was edge wear with tears and chips, one extending just into the image of the distant landscape on the right side and a larger one in the lower right side, white field. The restoration leaves the poster displaying beautifully. This poster was originally sold at the historic Basmajian Animation Art auction at Christies in 1986. From the collection of Pete Merolo. Fine on Paper.
