    Description

    The Reluctant Dragon Robert Benchley Storyboard Drawings Group of 24 (Walt Disney, 1941). This feature film mixed live action and animation. It was released on 6/20/41 and was the first of Disney's "compilation" feature films. This film opens with actor, radio star, and renown Algonquin Round Table wit Robert Benchley getting a tour of the new Walt Disney Studios in Burbank California. He is taken through various departments and given demonstrations at each stop. This is an extremely rare group of 24 detailed storyboards on 8" x 9" 5-peghole storyboard paper. Most are in graphite while some are rendered in charcoal and/or gouache. The lot includes eight of Mr. Benchley in Sound Effects (where he sees work on Casey Junior), four in the Soundtrack Music department, eight in the Molding/Sculpture department (where a bust of Mr. Benchley is made), and three boards that showcase Benchley as an elephant, at a storyboard session, and one with a live Bambi-like deer. Dialogue is written in the bottom border. There is major handling and edge wear, with tape on some and pinholes in corners. Good overall condition.
