DescriptionThe Opry House Mickey Mouse Production Drawing (Walt Disney, 1929). While running an opera house, Mickey performs a vaudeville show all by himself. Acts include his impersonation of a snake charmer and performing a belly dance. This Mickey Mouse short was notable for being the most expensive Disney cartoon at the time with a budget of $2,500! The Opry House, released on 3/28/29, was produced by Walt Disney, who also provided the voice of Mickey. The short was directed by Walt and Ub Iwerks. In this lot we have a wonderful production drawing of Mickey Mouse which can be seen at the 1:10 time mark. The drawing was rendered in graphite on 12 field, 2-peghole animation paper. The piece is floated in a 19" x 17.5" frame with Plexiglas and a mat opening of 12.5" x 10". This is a great opportunity to add a classic piece of vintage animation art to your collection. The art has very mild age-related toning, and is otherwise in Very Good condition.
