Release of Walt Disney's "The Three Caballeros"... U.S. prohibition leader dies..



Item # 682700

February 03, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 3 & 5, 1945, along with the  MINNIAPOLIS SUNDAY TRIBUNE's Picture Section, January 28, 1945

* Walt Disney's ~ The Three Caballeros
William E. Johnson's death

This 2 issue set (with bonus Picture Section) covers the historic release of the 1st movie to merge animation and live action.  Walt Disney's The Three Caballeros starred: Panchito, Joe Carioca, Donald Duck with Actresses, Aurora Miranda, Dora Luz and Carmen Molina.  In addition to the the beautiful colored print, this set has the opening week ad and movie review covering Walt Disney's cutting edge technology.

Additionally, the top of page 11 has a one column heading: "W. E. JOHNSON DIES; DRY CRUSADER, 82" with subheads and photo.  First report coverage on American prohibition advocate and law enforcement officer, William "Pussyfoot" Johnson. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day.
The NEW YORK TIMES issues are  believed to be complete and have small binding holes on the left margin, otherwise in very nice condition.  The colored section is in very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 311 (released for October, 2021)...
