    The Autograph Hound Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). "You leave him alone! He's Donald Duck!" And with those words, spoken by Shirley Temple, the hound becomes the hounded... Donald has been pestering an entire backlot's worth of Hollywood stars all day long - but when the studio is alerted to the fact that THE Donald Duck is visiting the lot, "Tinseltown's finest" mob him in a mad dash for his autograph. He has thus far been successful in eluding the studio security guard. Stars with whom Donald directly interacts include Greta Garbo, Mickey Rooney, Sonja Henie, Henry Armetta, and the Ritz Brothers. Many others make cameos in the finale. This Technicolor short was released on September 1, 1939, and was directed by Jack King. Legendary animators Ward Kimball and Shamus Culhane both worked on the film as well. Fun fact: this was the first film in which Donald's trademark sailor's cap was colored blue, instead of white - though in posters for the film, the old coloring is used. This drawing is taken from the pivotal moment in the film, when the security guard has finally caught up with the elusive Donald... After grabbing him by the scruff and pulling him through the porthole of a battleship set piece, he shouts gleefully, "NOW, I got ya!" It can be seen at the 5:37 point in the short. The image area measures roughly 7" x 5" and the drawing is rendered in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper. A large full-body drawing of both characters, with vibrant colored shading to provide guidance for the Ink & Paint Department when denoting shadow, shading, and "motion-blur." In Fine condition.
