Item # 647987

October 24, 1941

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York,  October 24, 1941

* Dumbo - elephant & mouse
* Walt Disney animated cartoon movie
* Opening day movie review


On page 27 under 'THE SCREEN IN REVIEW" is a three column headline: "Disney's Cartoon, 'Dumbo,' a Fanciful Delight, at Broadway--'You'll Never Get Rich,' With Astaire and Rita Hayworth, at Music Hall--New Film at Palace" which is the very 1st movie review for this Disney classic the day after the premiere showing in New York City's Broadway theater. Complete text can be viewed in the photos below. The 1st time review also has a two column illustration of Dumbo. On the same page is a 7 x 4 inch theater ad for this movie as well.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, 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.
