With a printed authentication certificate from Cartoons & Comics of Burbank, CA hand-signed by Howard Lowery, the internationally known Walt Disney and cartoon art expert, authenticating the drawing as Òan original work of art by the distinguished Walt Disney animator and director Jack Kinney. It was created as an illustration for his book ÔWalt Disney and Assorted Other Characters. An Unauthorized Account of the Early Years at DisneyÕ (Harmony Books, 1989). This illustration appears on page 67.Ó In the drawing Kinney shows Reeves hard at work, struggling for a story idea, shaking his head with a cloud of dandruff flying, as he says, ÒSon of a Buck.Ó The caption reads, ÒHarry ÔSnackeryÕ Reeves had dandruff and a nervous habit of tugging his collar while trying to think of a gag or piece of ÔbusinessÕ.Ó Fine condition. Jack Kinney (1909 - 1992) was hired by Walt Disney in 1931, the early days of the Depression, to work at the Walt Disney Studio on Hyperion Avenue in East Hollywood. His beginning career includes his work on several shorts, including Santa's Workshop (1932), The Band Concert (1935), and Moose Hunters (1937). He went on to become a director of cartoons, working on the features Pinocchio and Dumbo, but he really shined in the shorts department, where his Goofy cartoons are among the best to come out of the Disney Studios. He received five Academy Award nominations and won an Oscar for the 1943 cartoon ÔDer FuhrerÕs Face,Õ the only Donald Duck film to win an Academy Award. In 1959, Jack left Disney to start (with his brother Dick) Jack Kinney Productions, an independent animation studio. In his book ÔWalt Disney and Assorted Other Characters. An Unauthorized Account of the Early Years at Disney,Õ Kinney recounts the highs and lows of daily life as a member of the creative department at Disney, where the staff referred to themselves as ÔinmatesÕ and the practical jokes and camaraderie provided rich material for the gags and scenes that they created for the screen. Working for Walt Disney could be as inspiring as it could be frustrating and his book presents an insiderÕs perspective with great humor and candor. He puts it best in his introduction: ÒThese are my personal recollections of the Disney Studio where I worked for more than a quarter-century. It is the story of the little people, the strivers, the doers. It is about the pranks, the gags, the human foibles we remember so lovingly, and about the growing pains suffered by all involved. The Golden Age of Animation was a glorious experience.Ó. Codice inventario libreria 19537E
