    7 Wise Dwarfs Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1941). Outstanding hand-painted production background of Sleepy, Grumpy, and Doc's diamond collection bags, from the World War II propaganda film series used to promote Canadian War Bonds. In the film, initially released on 12/12/41, graphics read "Lend your Savings... Keep Your Money Fighting!" Pinto Colvig provided the voice of Doc. Several scenes from the original Snow White film were inserted into this promotional film, part of a series of four Canadian War Bond trailers and shorts. The beautiful art is in gouache on a 12 field 5-peghole sheet; a Disney Studio stamp is on the reverse, along with the production number 2607. This is made to order for collectors of Snow White and World War II propaganda material! Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
