    Description

    Der Fuehrer's Face Production Background (Walt Disney, 1943). Used to help sell war bonds, this film was the most famous of the propaganda shorts made by Disney during World War II, and it won Donald Duck his only Academy Award! It was directed by Jack Kinney and released on 1/1/43. This is a hand-painted Master production background showing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito that can be seen at about 1:56 into the short, as Donald wakes up early to go to work in the factory in Nazi Germany and salutes this background! This is an important piece of the legacy of wartime cartoons. Matted and framed (without glass) to 19.5" x 17" with a mat opening of 10" x 8". In Fine condition.
