Description

    Victory Through Airpower Painted Production Background (Walt Disney, 1943). On 9/17/43, the Walt Disney Studios released its feature-length World War II propaganda film. It was based on the book Victory Through Airpower by Major Alexander de Seversky. Walt Disney read this book and was so impressed by the message that he rushed this film to market in a mere 14 months. This is an extremely rare trimmed hand-painted production background from the hand of Disney background artist Robert Blanchard. It shows in stunning detail the Japanese supply railroad area that is bombed in this film. It can be seen in the film around the 1:04 mark. In gouache on thin board trimmed to 10.75" x 8.75". Back side of the art has Disney stamps and handwritten note, "Ariel View Factory" along with the production number 2018 and sequence and scenes 43/05.4. The Studio stamp "Return this Material to Art Props Department" is also on reverse. Fine condition.
