    Mickey Mouse in The Barn Dance (Columbia, 1929). Stock One Sheet (29" X 42").
    After a short stint in the early 1920s producing cartoons in Kansas City, novice animator Walt Disney moved to Los Angeles where he launched the Alice Comedies that combined live action with animation. His next series starred Oswald the Rabbit, which bore a resemblance to Disney's later creation, an animated mouse. By 1928, he started his own studio and produced three cartoons starring Mickey Mouse, two silent and one with sound, Steamboat Willie. Posters from Mickey's early days before Disney made the switch from Columbia to United Artists are extremely rare, such as this stock one sheet from Barn Dance, the famous mouse's fourth short. In this cartoon, Mickey must compete with Pete for the affections of Minnie, and in a rare twist, his rival comes out on top! Within a few short years, Mickey Mouse became the most popular cartoon ever created. With his beloved impish grin and trademark oversized feet and ears, Mickey appears ready to talk, sing and dance his way into the hearts of moviegoers worldwide. The real rarity to this one sheet is that it mentions animator Ub Iwerks on the poster. Iwerks left Disney in 1930 and his name was blackened off of the further poster printings or left off of the poster entirely. The poster has been restored on linen to address fold wear and paper loss in three borders, some of which extends slightly into the background. The image is fully intact and the color is quite strong, making this an irresistible find for dedicated collectors! Fine on Linen.
