Mega's Disney One-Sheet

Mega Collector's weekend offering: "Mother Goose Goes Hollywood," in an original poster, featuring Edward G. Robinson, the Marx brothers, W.C. Fields, Charlie McCarthy, Katherine Hepburn, Hugh Herbert (anybody remember him?) and numerous others. ...

Mega has this colorful specimen hanging in his office, and I took a picture of it ... which explains the annoying reflections.

The picture came out at the tail end of 1938, when Pinocchio and Bambi were in production. Walt was paying more attention to the features at this point. The shorts, thought still high in quality, received less of his tender loving care. Studio veteran Wilfred Jackson was the director of this "Symphony;" Jackson also directed sequences of Dumbo, Fantasia, Pinocchio and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs among numerous others.
