Rare original release UK poster for Disney's second feature length film.Disney's second feature length animated movie continues to divide. On its first release, it failed to score with the public as heavily as Snow White, released three years earlier. And even today, it leaves critics divided between those who think it includes the extremes of Disney sentimentality and is therefore flawed, and those who find it the greatest example of Disney's combination of wit, beauty, saccharine and some fairly terrifying stuff (on Pleasure Island). We are in the latter camp. This is a wonderful film. Original posters from its first release, more than seventy years ago, are very rarely found, and collectors who buy them tend to keep them. So we are delighted to offer this original Insert, with beautiful, almost Gothic, artwork of the puppet who would be a boy, and his conscience, Jiminy Crickett (and a few of the more frightening members of the cast too).
