A bit of storyboard...

From Cat Nap Pluto (Charles Nichols, 1948), here called Dog Tired, the first board for this film by Eric Guerney.
Doggone Tired...< Click on it!
The only page I have, I bought it last week at Bob Molinari & Martin Turnbull's Disneyana shop Fantasies Come True on 8012 Melrose Ave, L.A. They are having to move, and much of the stuff is half price or less - lots of beautiful OLD stuff, including original stat model sheets! Last day open at this location: September 23rd!
Open Wednesday to Saturday from 12 noon to 3pm.

The last day of the 3-D Expo had an amazing treat: The Mousketeer 3-D Jamboree, as shown in Disneyland 1957-1960! Annette in a tutu on a swing throwing roses at you in glorious studio Technicolor in a perfect new 3-D print! Who can ask for anything more?
Also: an amazing Technicolor IB test print with images polarized ON the (one) filmstrip, an 'eye' on each side - and it worked fine! They used Disney's Melody for that test. It was abandoned, as CinemaScope had already taken over, and nowadays it would be impossible to do, as IB printing is no more...

Great looking stuff. Is that Guerney's artwork? Just wondering, because at Warners, in the late 40s, they had to hire a sketch artist for Tedd Pierce because he was such a lousy artist.
