Premier of Walt Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" - ad and review...

Item # 655842

February 8, 1959

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 8, 1959

* The last Walt Disney animated feature film adaptation of a Fairy Tale for 30 years
* Grammy for 'Best Soundtrack" - Oscar for "Best Scoring of a Musical Picture"
* Pre-Premier showing (in New York) advertisement

Page 9X has a large (7"x14"), pre-premier advertisement for the New York showing of "WALT DISNEY'S SLEEPING BEAUTY." See images for details. Nice to have in a New York newspaper from prior to its first New York appearance.
Note: While the first showing of "Sleeping Beauty" is listed as January 30th, it appeared in only a handful of theaters - and did not have full national distribution until February 18th.
Background: The initial reaction to "Sleeping Beauty" was so disappointing, Disney would not release another animated feature film of an adaption of a Fairy Tale for 30 years.
The issue appears to be complete in many sections and pages (it is a Sunday edition), it is being offered for the described content. The left spine has small binding holes (typical), but the issue is in very nice, evenly toned condition.
