Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland, Original Poster

LJW ANTIQUES
Walt Disney's attempts to produce an Alice in Wonderland film stared in the 1930s, but Disney's all-animated feature wasn't released in cinemas until 1951 but it received a luke-warm reception and was never re-released in cinemas during Disney's life time, Alice in Wonderland aired as the second episode of the Walt Disney's 'Disneyland' television series in America on November 3, 1954, in a severely edited version that was cut down to less than an hour. However, a couple of decades later the 'psychedelic era' was beginning and Alice in Wonderland in all it's technicolour glory was finding a new and far more receptive audience... Beginning in 1971, the film was screened in several sold-out venues at college campuses, becoming the most rented film in some cities and in 1974 Disney gave the film it's first theatrical re-release and with it was met with huge success.

This original US one-sheet film poster was produced for that 1974 re-release and with it's vibrant colours and swirling graphics it's very clear that Disney were trying to push the film's psychedelic appeal. For me the artwork on this poster is amongst the most appealing of all the posters that I've encountered from this era and this particular example is nicely preserved with minimal fading and no notable damage. The poster would've originally been tri-folded for distribution to cinemas and these fold lines are still visible and the yellow background is a little darker along the folds but this is all to be expected with an authentic vintage piece and adds to it's character.

The poster has been professionally framed using conservation grade backing paper and is ready to hang. Including the frame it measures 107cm high x 71.5cm wide x 2.5cm deep.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
