    Song of the South Elmer Plummer Signed Contract (Walt Disney, 1944). Elmer Plummer was a driving force in the mid 1940s at Walt Disney Studio in Story and Character Development. In Song of the South he received credit as "Art Treatment". This is a June 8th 1944 Walt Disney Productions contract for Elmer Plummer to make, create and produce up to 25 key sketches "...which we desire to use for the purpose or as a method of establishing locale and general art keying of our forthcoming picture now technically entitled 'Uncle Remus'...". The contract is three pages and is hand-signed by Elmer Plummer and Gunther Lessing, VP/Attorney at Walt Disney Studios. It was for a flat rate of $500 and asked for completion in three weeks. A rare and great look into the studio at this time. Minor handling and wear, otherwise in Fine condition. From the Elmer Plummer Archives.
