    Sam McKim "McKim Kiddies" Illustration (1935). Sam McKim, the legendary Disney Imagineer, drew the first souvenir maps of Disneyland in 1954 and went on to spectacular 32-year career with the Walt Disney Studios. He started out however, as a child actor, appearing alongside such stars as John Wayne, Spencer Tracy, Rita Hayworth, and James Cagney. This amazing drawing, done when McKim was ten years old, was sent to the Hal Roach Studios in an attempt to find acting work for himself and his four brothers and sisters. Sam added cartoon bodies to clipped head shots of David, Lydia Ann, Harry, and Peggy, with hand-lettered notes and accolades written beside each child (all would go on to successful film careers) The art is in ink on 11.75" x 9" board, and is in Very Good condition. Several pages of info on McKim is also included.
