Walt Disney Loans Out His Car
 
If you love cars and Disney, this is the Walt Disney letter for you!  An unusual letter in which Walt Disney loans his car to a writer.  In this November 1954 letter Walt Disney authorizes Paul Hollister to use his car for a month.  It's not clear why Walt Disney would loan out his car, but here is what we do know about the borrower from Neal Gabler's book, Walt Disney The Triumph of the American Imagination:

... Shortly after the DISNEYLAND television show hit the air <October 1954>, Walt was approached by another writer, Paul Hollister, who had written an earlier piece on Disney for The Atlantic Monthly and had been commissioned by the magazine to do a biographical series on him, which would then be released as a book.  Hollister, who had been led by the Atlantic to believe it had Walt's authorization, completed the book, only to discover that Walt had not authorized it and, worse, that Roy, to whom Walt had passed the manuscript for approval, vehemently advised Walt not to let it be published because its style was "annoying" and its facts inaccurate.  Incensed when he was offered a small payment to drop the book, Hollister accused Walt of having "old Fixer Roy" try to buy him off because Roy and Walt knew that Hollister needed money.  Neither the series nor the book ever appeared."

Walt has signed this letter of authorization using his full legal Walter E. Disney signature, which is rare for letters.  The letter is in very fine condition with usual envelope folds.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  Item # 7188
