    Victory Through Airpower Promotional Poster and Production Cels Group (Walt Disney/Lockheed Aircraft, 1943). After reading the 1942 book Victory by Airpower by Alexander P. de Seversky, Walt Disney made this film to inform the US Government and its people about the theory on winning WWII through long range bombing plans. It is said both Roosevelt and Churchill were influenced by this film. It was released on 7/17/43 and eventually released on DVD in 2004 in the Disney Treasures DVD Silver Box series. This is an original and rare promo poster that was put out by Lockheed Aircraft Corporation - Vega Aircraft Corporations. It reads "Victory Through Airpower - Peace Through Airpower". The poster is 16" x 17". It has staining on the white border and handling along the edges, with a tiny tear on the bottom center, not near the 14" x 14" image. Great visual. The lot includes a folder marked "2017 - 2-28.4 Bombs Falling". The folder is stamped "Return this artwork to art props department". The folder includes 45 different 12 field nitrate cels of bombs, however they are all stuck together. Many missing paint. It seems this is an original folder where these cels have been stored together since the making of the film. Poster in Very Good condition, cels in Poor condition.
