    Walt Disney Vintage Studio Photo with Press Release Group (Walt Disney, 1940s-50s). A circa 1949 treated photo of Walt Disney, with subtle yellow toning added to his face, is featured in this interesting group of Studio ephemera. Also included is a typed, stapled 3-page manuscript, "Steps in the Making of Walt Disney Animated Productions," plus a second photocopy example; a typed and stapled seven-page manuscript, "The History of the Animated Cartoon" by Earl Theisen (noted on the last page as from a 1933 issue of The Journal of the Society of Motion Picture Engineers), on 8.5" x 14" paper, folded at the bottom; and finally, a one-sheet outline of the animation process, on 8.5" x 14" folded paper. Good overall condition; the photo has a few creases in the lower left corner.
