Walt Disney's Daughter Called Phil Sears' Museum Contribution
"One of the Most Valuable Things Our Museum Can Offer to Our Visitors."

The late Diane Disney Miller left a lasting legacy with-- among other achievements-- The Walt Disney Family Museum.  Phil Sears is honored that a Walt Disney letter from his collection is a star exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  Diane Disney Miller said:

"This is such an important letter, and to be able to display the original, in my dad's hand, is, to me, one of the most valuable things our museum can offer to our visitors.  When I first discovered this letter I was so touched by it .. the very young Walt, practically penniless, living with his uncle and working out of his uncle's garage, but presenting himself as an established producer offering an opportunity to Mrs. Davis' little daughter.  I'm certain that the absurdity of his situation never occurred to him, just the possibilities that it presented.  He had confidence in his own ability, and had just persuaded his brother Roy to join with him.  This was the beginning of something wonderful."

You can see the letter in person at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, or click HERE for a virtual view.

Dye Transfer Print with Authenticity Label

 Click any image for a better view
Mickey Mouse's official 25th anniversary print by John Hench!  Dye-transfer prints capture all the vibrant colors of the original cels (and are often mistaken for cels).  Back in Walt's day the Disney Studio made these high quality dye-transfer prints to give as gifts and special promotional items.  The Walt Disney studio only produced only a small number of these high quality prints; this one still has it's original Disney Studio authenticity label stating it is one of a select few produced.  This is one of several given to a 1950's manager of the Carnation food and ice cream locations at Disneyland.  Frame shows wear and measures 18" x 14.5" overall.  Print and mat in very fine condition, with vibrant colors and only minimal signs of aging and foxing after about 70 years!  Item # 7371, $299

1930's Pinocchio Behind-the-Scenes Production Publication
One of only 100 Produced by the Walt Disney Studio!

Click any image for a larger view
A unique behind-the-scenes look at creative process of "Walt Disney's Pinocchio" from before the movie was finished!  During the production of Walt Disney's classic "Pinocchio," Walt Disney had a legal problem.  Once completed, he could copyright the movie.  But during the several years-long production process, the story would go unprotected.  And the basic tale of Pinocchio was already public domain, written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi.  But Walt Disney added unique elements making it all his own-- if only he could claim copyright.  What if an unscrupulous publisher or producer got a hold of a script or drawings and rushed out a children's book or worse yet, a low budget knock-off movie?  Walt had had his creations usurped before-- it had only been a little more than a decade since Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was taken from him.  So in order to copyright the unique elements of Walt Disney's version of Pinocchio, the lawyers came up with a plan:  Take the script and the production story drawings in their raw form and create a limited publishing run in a unique book-like format not meant for public sale, but to stake out the intellectual property rights.  Producing 100 of these unusual production publications would be enough to secure the copyright in the United States, and another 100 published in England would secure the U.K. rights.  Here I'm pleased to present one of the 100 books published in England. 
 
The forward of this publication states (in part):
"
This book records the development of characters and basic story of Walt Disney's second feature length animated motion picture, "Pinocchio."  The story depicts the adventures of a little wooden marionette who comes to life.  It is derived from the well-known children's classic by Collidi and as presented here in the form of a written continuity, character model sheets and story sketches....   These rough pencil sketches, and thousands more like them, serve collectively has a plan or master pattern for the completed picture.  Their function is to outline the action of the story as it will appear ultimately on the screen..... With a characteristic in formality, indicated by the traditional animation studio prop– the pushpin– the following pages offer an intimate backstage view of a Walt Disney picture in the making."
The book is numbered 63 out 100.  This unique behind-the-scenes look at creative process of PINOCCHIO depicts over 200 storyboard drawings, 66 character model sheets, contains 11 pages of story outline, and 14 images of character maquettes (3 dimensional sculpted models) spread over 41 large pages.  Book measures 12" x 10".  Some soiling and minor wear to cloth covers as shown in photos above; otherwise very fine condition.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  Item # 1851B, $1495

1960's Electric Disneyland Monorail Train by Schuco
Tested and Guaranteed to Run!
(clickable for a larger view)
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric monorail train to the highest German standards.  Almost 15" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production  closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960’s standards and few could afford them.  Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recently, but 18 volt DC powered electric train sets with variable speed in forward and reverse, with metal trim (just the way Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)!  A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20 volt electric train transformer (I highly recommend the LGB 50081 transformer available on eBay for about $80).  

 This train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!
This monorail has been tuned up and runs really well. Add a transformer and this train is ready to go!  All the accessories are present (the red and black wires are modern replacements) and I have included a photocopy of the instructions and my own tip sheet for setting up your Schuco Monorail and making it run like a charm.  Box shows some wear and repair but with bright Matterhorn Mountain graphics.  An amazing Disneyland model train set, still ready to ride the rails after 60 years!

  The art for this serigraph cel was carefully selected by Disney artists from the actual 1942 animation drawing used to produce the original film. The artists used the master print of the film as their color guide. The serigraphy artisans created separate screens, one for each color, from which the edition was created, one color at a time. By using the meticulous serigraph silk-screen process this beautiful result was achieved.  After this edition was produced, the screens used to produce it were destroyed to ensure a true limited edition.  Measures 14" by 11".  Disney seal of authenticity in lower right corner.  This sericel was originally sold with a white background; in addition we will include a complimentary color photocopy background.  Item # 4692, $99.95
