    Swiss Family Robinson Movie Poster Painted Illustration by Paul Wenzel (Walt Disney, 1960). This film was the single-highest grossing film of 1960. It is considered one of the most iconic of all the Disney live-action films ever made. It was released on 12/21/60 and its treehouse inspired a long-running permanent attraction at Disney Theme Parks. Artist Paul Wenzel worked at Disney Studios for 42 years and did artwork for over 100 historic and well-known Disney theatrical one-sheet posters. The one sheet for Swiss Family Robinson read, "The Greatest Adventure Story of Them All!" This is the original poster artwork of the section that showcases the family animal races, one of the most popular sections of the film. Art is in acrylics on board measuring 20.5" x 17.5", with a painted area of 17" x 12", and is hand-signed by Mr. Wenzel in the lower left. Original artwork of anything from this film is considered very rare. Tape and glue stains on the board. Good condition.
