    The New Spirit Storyboard Art (Walt Disney, 1942). "There's a Yankee Doodle spirit in the heart of everyone, it's the Yankee Doodle Spirit now that's shouldering a gun!" Cliff Edwards opens this Disney World War II Propaganda film that starred Donald Duck with this song. It was released on 1/24/42 and was distributed by the War Activities Committee of the Motion Picture Industry. The message was to pay one's taxes willingly and on time. This is an outstanding pastel storyboard on black paper that reads "Taxes for Ships! Battle Ships! Battle Cruisers! Destroyers!" This dialogue and scene can be seen around the 6:22 mark into the film. The overall theme was "Taxes to Destroy the Axis." Number 32 is written in the bottom right corner next to dialogue. Paper is 15" x 9" with art area of 14" x 6". Pinholes in corners, slight corner paper loss. Tape marks on back and slight fold line in center. Dialogue captions are panels glued to bottom border. Paper is very fragile. Overall Good condition.
