    Description

    Two Down, One to Go Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1945). "The fact is we have not been fighting two wars, but a global war!" Original hand-painted 16 field 5-peghole production background of North America on the globe. This is from the Disney-produced World War II Propaganda short directed by Frank Capra. It featured General Marshall, Chief of Staff of the Army for both Roosevelt and Truman. Winston Churchill called Marshall the "Organizer of Victory." You can see this background around the 2:10 mark, during General Marshall's war overview. Caricatures of Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito are shown in this film. Outstanding gouache painting on blackguard board, marked in the bottom border Sc 7 and 11 4007. Extensive studio stamps and notes are on the reverse. Very rare piece of Walt Disney Studio's World War II efforts. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
