    Description

    Victory Through Airpower Painted Production Background (Walt Disney, 1943). On 9/17/43, Walt Disney Studios released its feature length World War II Propaganda film. It was based on the book Victory Through Airpower by Major Alexander de Seversky. Walt Disney read this book and was so impressed by the message he rushed this film to market in a mere 14 months. This is an outstanding trimmed hand-painted production background from the hand of one of the film's background painters, Robert Blanchard. Stunning detail to the Japanese supply railroad that the US would bomb, seen at around the 1:04 mark into the film. Trimmed to 11" x 8.5". The back is stamped "Property of Walt Disney Productions" and "Return This Material to Art Props Dept." Robert Blanchard's name and NY address is written on the back of the background. Amazing detail. Extremely rare! Fine condition.
