    The Old Mill Animation Drawings Group of 4 (Walt Disney, 1937). This Academy Award-winning Silly Symphony short was released on 11/5/37, and in 2015, was selected by the US Library of Congress for preservation in the Nation Film Registry. This is a rare set of four studio publicity drawings for the short. These exact elements can be seen in the theatrical posters as well as in lobby cards and black & white Press Photos released for this film. The layout artist on this film was Terrell Stapp, but these publicity drawings may be from the hand of either Hank Porter or Tom Wood. All are done on trimmed 10" x 12" paper, in blue pencil with graphite and a few red pencil highlights. Amazing images of the Owl and Doves, the two Owls with the Old Mill in the background, the family of mice during the rain, and the sun coming up over the meadow. This is very important artwork in terms of the history of Disney. There is minor handling wear, a light crease on the Owl with the Moon, and there is tape on the border of the Old Mill drawing and pinholes in the corner. Just beautiful drawings, all in Fine condition.
