Screenland Contest - Feb.1935

Here is one contest that I would not want to win the first prize in!'

Seeing that a pair of large Mickey dolls sold for some $144,000 at Hake's recently, and with even the 11th prize, an uncut Waddle Book being near unaffordable, the $100 first prize is at this time a laugh, to say the least. Any single one of the prizes (except the Hinds products, I would think) is now worth at least several times that. One should, of course, put it in the context of the Great Depression. But still. Look at the three fourth prizes! Suitably framed!

This February 1935 Screenland magazine also includes an article on Walt Disney, which I will return to shortly.

Happy Bastille Day to all the French readers (if any)!

I wonder if any of the three illustrations have survived? Any one of those would be a great addition to my own collection of vintage Disneyana - if only!
