    Reliability Air Force Training Flim Color Key Group of 5 (Graphic Films, c. 1950s/60s). Series of five pages of rare hand-painted Graphic Films Color Keys done for an Air Force Training film called Reliability. Lester Novros (1909 - 2000) left Disney after receiving an Art Direction credit on the "Night on Bald Mountain" section of Fantasia and opened Graphic Films. It began as a World War II Training Films Company. It would become one of the Armed Forces leading Training Film Companies, and eventually lead the way to understanding potential space travel. Lester Novros also became a leading instructor and course writer for film at USC. The small color keys are mounted to black 8.5" x 11" light boards. A cover sheet with notes from the hand of Lester Novros is included. Minor handling, some Key paintings missing. Overall condition is Good.
