    Description

    Around the World in 80 Minutes Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney/United Artists, 1931). A super-rare image of Mickey Mouse, drawn in graphite on 12 field 2-peghole paper, taken from a documentary/travelogue starring Douglas Fairbanks and directed by Victor Fleming. In this feature-length film, Fairbanks (a leading movie star from the pre-talkies era) and crew travel to Japan, China, Hong Kong, and other exotic ports; during a stop in Siam (Thailand), he brings out Mickey Mouse to dance in both native and American styles in an animated bit created especially for this film. This is undoubtedly the rarest of all Mickey Mouse film appearances, from early in his historic career. High-stepping Mickey is about 3" tall here, well-centered on the animation paper with a wonderful pose. The paper is marked "253" in the bottom right corner, and the art is in Fine condition.
