    Mickey's Gala Premiere Mickey Mouse and Film Stars Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933). "Tonight's the night Mickey Mouse premieres. And every star in Hollywood will appear!" This is the first Mickey Mouse short where he interacts with humans. Burt Gillett directed this cartoon that brought all the Golden Age of Hollywood stars into a Mickey Mouse short. It was released on 7/2/33. This is an original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing featuring Mickey being mobbed by the adoring stars. After being roped in by Will Rogers, the stars converge on Mickey for handshakes. This is the largest star scene in the short. It can be seen around the 6:21 mark. Graphite image of Mickey has a size of 3" with a great smile. He is mobbed by nine of Hollywood's biggest stars at the time (Eddie Cantor, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Wallace Berry, Jimmy Durante, George Arliss, Joe. E. Brown, Fredric March, and Marie Dressler). Group scene image size is an amazing 10" x 6". Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition. PLEASE NOTE: The large faint spot along the left side is on the reverse and does not show through in person as it does online.

    More Information: EDIT: Mentioned large faint stain along left side (which is actually on the reverse side).
