* Disney's animated movie "Pinocchio"
* Introduced to the World
Page 18 contains the first review of the new animated movie from the Disney Studios, "Pinocchio". This was their 2nd animated movie, following on the heals of the wildly successful "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs".
The very favorable review begins: "If Westbrook Pegler could write...that Walt Disney's "Snow White" was the happiest event since the armistice, we can report confidently this morning that Mr. Disney's "Pinocchio" is the happiest event since the war..." with much more (see photos for portions).
The review includes a two column photo from the movie showing both Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket (see).
Complete 44 page newspaper very nice condition.
