* Walt Disney's "Fantasia" movie premiere
* Mickey Mouse - opening night advertisement
Page 29 has a 10 x 4 inch advertisement for the opening night showing of the famous Walt Disney animated cartoon movie 'Fantasia' starring Mickey Mouse. Also one column headings on the same page: "'Fantasia' Opens Tonight" "Stokowski and Philadelphia Orchestra to Be Heard in Walt Disney Feature" With movies at that time usually released 1st in New York City, this could very well be one of 1st advertisements for this movie classic in any newspaper. Nice edition for any Walt Disney collector.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
