M & MS - An Auxiliary Gallery

*"You know I love the silent posters and ephemera, but these Showboat posters are about as fascinating as anything you have ever posted."* - JackFavell

 

Thank you for saying that. It is quite the compliment coming from a silent fan such as you.

 

I sort of just stumbled upon adding these to the Gallery. I have been searching out and gathering items that refer to specific parts of the documentary for this Gallery. But the other early musical posters were popular postings so I looked through my "archive" of materials and came across these three which I have had around for quite while. Thinking it over, I thought they deserved a place in this thread even if "Moguls And Movie Stars" didn't mention the film. They "fit". And they are quite beautiful too.

 

Plus, with the descriptions, they do tell a "story" of the early sound days themselves. Posting items that are significant artifacts to the history of Hollywood and which expand upon the documentary's stories of the Studios pleases me.

 

But it is greater that it has pleased you too.

*Was there ever an RKO film made titled "Exposed"?*

 

I don't have my RKO book handy (it's back home) but a search of the TCM database reveals no film with that title produced by RKO but Universal used the title in 1938.

"Walt Disney arrived in Hollywood in the early 1920s featuring a pilot film called "Alice in Wonderland" with a live-action girl surrounded by a cartoon world. Distributor M.J. Winkler agreed to finance the "shorts" and the rest is history."

(1928)

 

It's fair to say that without Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, there would be no Mickey Mouse and no Walt Disney Company. In 1927, young Walt Disney created a new character for Universal, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. But a budget dispute would force Disney to leave Universal and strike out on his own. With the rights to the popular character contracted to Universal, Walt Disney literally went back to the drawing board and created Mickey Mouse. Oswald would eventually fall into obscurity while Mickey Mouse would become one of the greatest cultural icons of all time. In 2006, The Walt Disney Company decided to bring Oswald the Rabbit home. Sportscaster Al Michaels, long the face of Disney/ABC's Monday Night Football, wanted to join the Universal/NBC Sports team. In an unorthodox move, Disney agreed to release Michaels from his contract in exchange for the return of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to the Disney family. The deal was finalized and Oswald was back in the Disney fold.

Chief,

 

MJ Winkler was a woman and she worked well with Disney on producing the Alice Comedies. When she married Charles Mintz, she retired from producing and he took over.

 

Mintz and Disney didn't have a good business relationship. Mintz tried to nickel and dime Disney on every film and reduced the production fees on the later Alice comedies.

 

Disney developed Oswald when the Alice comedies began to run out of steam. Mintz saw an opportunity to drive a wedge between Disney and his other animators, especially Ub Iwerks.

 

On the sly, Mintz signed most of the other animators, including Ub, to a new contract. Disney went back East by train to negotiate with Mintz on the Oswald shorts unaware that he was walking into a trap.

 

When Mintz tried to hardball Disney on the cost of the Oswald shorts, Disney balked and refused. It was then he learned what Mintz had done. He also learned that he did not the rights to Oswald. Universal did.

 

He walked away from the deal and boarded the train to return to Los Angeles. He sent a telegram to his brother, Roy that everything was going to be okay. On the train ride home, he created Mickey Mouse.

 

He also vowed to own the rights to everything he produced from that time on.

Quick, please, somebody invent a time machine. There aren't many things I'd like more than to walk into one of those theaters and watch the show. I'm old, but not that old, so even though I can't feel nostalgia for that time, I sure feel a yearning. (I'm afraid I'd want to come back to today, though, as messed-up as it is in many ways.)
