Our introduction into popular culture occurs very early in our lives, and it should be no surprise that one of the people responsible for it is Theodor Geisel, better-known as Dr. Seuss. Born in 1904, Geisel was an author, cartoonist, and animator. Although he attempted to market his artwork in various ways, his first major success came after “The Cat in the Hat” was published in 1957. More success followed with such well known titles as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” and “The Lorax.” Geisel’s use of rhymes and rhythm, paired with whimsical illustrations, made his books unforgettable and irresistible. Today, his books have been translated into 30 languages and have sold over 600 million copies worldwide. Geisel’s imagination inspired an empire of books, feature films, TV specials, and merchandise that remain deeply ingrained in our popular culture. As Dr. Seuss, Geisel has become a cultural icon, fondly remembered for his stories that encourage kindness, compassion, and making the world a better place. His legacy lives on through the Dr. Seuss Foundation that supports over 100 cultural, medical, and socially active institutions.

Few types of media have been able to bring as much laughter, joy, and entertainment as the newspaper comic strip. Since the appearance of “The Yellow Kid” in 1895, comics have been a mainstay of the modern-day Newspaper. Series such as “Prince Valiant” and “Dick Tracy” are regarded for their significant contributions to the history of the medium, while series such as “Peanuts” and “Blondie” are still well-known and enjoyed by fans of every age. Original comic strip artwork and drawings from series creators and artists such as Charles Schulz, Bil Keane, Bill Melendez, Chester Gould, and others, are among the most sought-after of comic strip relics.

Best known for his comic strip “Peanuts,” Charles M. Schulz was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1922. As a young boy, Schulz dreamt of becoming a professional cartoonist and spent Sunday mornings reading comics with his father. When the first “Peanuts” strip was published on October 2, 1950, Schulz never imagined that a minimalistic, four-panel gag-strip would lead to one of the most influential comics in popular culture history. The strip ran for 50 years, with enough fresh humor to attract new readers while remaining comfortable for early fans. Quirky, relatable characters such as Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Linus, and Woodstock have appeared on clothing, figurines, advertisements, and Hallmark cards for over 65 years. TV specials, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965) and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (1966), are considered timeless holiday classics. The last “Peanuts” strip was published on February 13, 2000 and the series remains one of the most successful comic strips of all time.

Comedy is one of the oldest genres of film and a mainstay of our popular culture. Although usually focused on individual performances, comedies of the 1970s and 80s brought us ensemble casts of humorous and dramatic actors. Films such as “Murder by Death” played into the popularity, but it was Mel Brooks who truly mastered the genre with works like “Young Frankenstein,” “Silent Movie,” and “Spaceballs.” Burt Reynolds and an all-star cast thrilled audiences with “Cannonball Run,” and films such as “Police Academy” introduced us to a whole new generation of comedic talent. Original film posters and developmental artwork from these movies can be wonderful reminders of the endearing strength of comedies and their effect on our popular culture.

Science fiction, action, adventure, and fantasy are genres which have played an important role in film since movie-making began, and continue to influence our world today. Walt Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” enthralled audiences with state-of-the art visual effects and ground-breaking cinemascope technology when it was released. Movies such as “War of the Worlds” and “Planet of the Apes” became staples of the science fiction genre for their iconic stories and characters. “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” “The Black Hole,” “Tron,” and “Star Trek,” solidified the popularity of science fiction during the 1970s and 80s. When “Star Wars” premiered in 1977, it practically created a genre for itself and launched a popular culture phenomenon still going strong today. More fantasy and science fiction films followed with “E.T.,” “Back to the Future,” and “Lord of the Rings.” Action and adventure saw the introduction of Indiana Jones and the continuation of the James Bond franchise. The works in these genres not only heavily influenced the popular culture of the 1970s and 80s but made such a lasting impression that artifacts from these films are still sought after today.

150. Rare John Battle 1952 “20,000 Leagues” Screenplay (Disney, 1952) An incredibly rare first draft screenplay of Walt Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by writer John Tucker Battle. This script comes from the collection of Harper Goff, who famously worked on conceptual artwork for the film including designs for the Nautilus. While Earl Fenton was writing the script for “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” that would eventually become the basis for the final film, Walt Disney separately instructed Battle to write his own version. This very early first draft, dated February 19, 1952, contains 295 typed pages which offer a wealth of information and content for what could have become the final iconic film. A common practice in the 1950s was to use onionskin paper along with carbon paper to type duplicates from a typewriter. This screenplay features thin onionskin paper and is held in place with brass brads and has an outer blue-green cover with a Walt Disney Productions label. Measuring 11.25”x9.25”, the screenplay is in fair condition with wear to the cover from use, including some yellowing and creasing around the edges of the cover, and some creasing to a few of the inner pages.

Above left and right: Two images showing the painted oval rivets, which would become circular when “stretched”.

152. “20,000 Leagues” Anamorphic Nautilus Model. (Disney, c.1953) An extremely rare hand-painted wooden model of the Nautilus from Walt Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. This prototype model has been affectionately referred to as the “Anamorphic Nautilus” due to its ‘squished’ proportions. This model comes from the collection of Harper Goff, who famously designed this rare prototype as a way to solve a unique production issue while filming. At the time, the Studio only had one CinemaScope lens, so Goff devised a way to shoot a ‘squished’ model using a normal lens that, when projected in CinemaScope, would be ‘stretched’ to normal proportions. This model of the Nautilus was designed by Goff for those early tests, and photos of this model both before and after the ‘stretch’ were kept by Goff in his personal scrapbook. It is unclear if this technique was ultimately used in any final scenes in the film, as various interviews with production staff from the film recount that this technique was used, however it is difficult to determine this within the footage itself. Nevertheless, Goff’s own accounts of designing this prototype describe details such as the rivets being painted in an oval shape so that they would stretch to become circular, as can be seen in the small painted oval rivets in this model. Measuring approximately 22” long and 9” tall, this model is in fair to good condition with some surface scratches and areas of wear from use and age. There are some portions of the model which are now missing, including the ram and rakers, rudder, and flagpole. This incredibly rare artifact is a wonderfully unique version of the Nautilus and plays an important role in the creation of this iconic film. $3,000-$5,000

153. Walt Disney’s “20,000 Leagues” Presentation Nautilus. (Disney, c.1954) This is the original wooden Nautilus model used by Walt Disney to promote the feature film “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. The model can be seen with Walt Disney in the 1954 episode of the Disneyland television show “Operation Undersea”, as well as the 1957 episode “Our Friend the Atom”. When it came time for Walt Disney to introduce the Nautilus to general audiences prior to the theatrical release of the film, it was this model that Walt selected as his focal point. Constructed by hand in wood, this large Nautilus model beautifully captures the essence of the iconic feature film. Measuring approximately 44” long and displayed on a custom-built stand for the model’s protection, this incredible artifact is in good condition overall with wear throughout from use. At some point after the model’s initial use, the Nautilus was partially damaged leaving a few thin cracks, dings, or small breaks, and a few small areas were replaced including the ram, dorsal fin, propeller, and lenses. It is believed that once these areas were replaced, the model received a new coat of paint so that all of the areas would better match in color. However, some of the original lighter streaks of brown can be seen in areas of the model that match the coat of paint as seen in the 1950s films. Additionally, since many parts of the Nautilus were hand-carved and hand-tooled, they are unique in size and shape. These areas, such as the raker teeth on the sides and front of the model, can be easily matched to the vintage photos of Walt Disney with this exact model. This Nautilus is an incredible artifact in the creation and history of “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, having been personally handled and used by Walt Disney himself. $20,000-$30,000

Due to the apparent age and unusual construction of this pin and case, it is believed this may have been a crew gift that Goff received for his work on the film. This is the only such pin that we have seen, and that it once belonged to Goff himself makes it a very unique item. The nautilus portion of the pin measures just over 0.75” long.

“I remember one day, Producer Gary Kurtz called me. At the time, I didn’t know what I was going to meet him for. We sat down, and Gary began describing Star Wars to me. He would say things like, ‘We’re starting in a galaxy far, far away’ and he told me, ‘It’s a Western film in space, it’s episodic, and we’re starting in the middle’. Everything was so real to this guy; the way he described it was like he saw it all so clearly in his head. We ended up working on a bunch of promotional and campaign materials for the film and the two sequels, from posters to promotional booklets, and much more.” - Bill Wallen

When Walt Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” premiered in 1937 it sparked a legacy of animated feature films that have helped create some of entertainment’s most iconic characters. However, even before the first animated feature film, cartoon characters appeared on the big screen in the form of theatrical shorts. Animation allowed filmmakers to tell stories with more fantastical elements such as the talking animals of “Lady and the Tramp” and “The Jungle Book”. Over time, theatrical animation has become a respected art form in its own right, bolstered by such groundbreaking films as The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” and Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. Developmental artwork and posters relating to these films offer beautiful imagery perfect for display, and original animation cels are fantastic collectibles that are in themselves, unique slices of the film.

The dramatic genre in film was originally adapted from theatre, where it referred to a type of play that was neither a comedy nor a tragedy. These types of films are more serious, and hinge upon characters and scenarios that feel much more real and relatable to the viewer. Dramas brought us such iconic characters as Rocky Balboa in “Rocky” and Tony Montana in “Scarface,” which inspired audiences to connect with the characters in such a way that they are still referenced commonly today. Some of the most celebrated films of the modern era have belonged to this genre. Whether it’s someone dealing with tragedy, fighting the good fight, or defying the odds, dramas thrive as a meaningful cornerstone of modern cinema and popular culture.

When it comes to modern cinema, few genres have enthralled audiences and influenced popular culture as much as horror and thriller films. Regarding the appeal of horror movies, author Stephen King has said, “The mythic horror movie, like the sick joke, has a dirty job to do. It deliberately appeals to all that is worst in us. It is morbidity unchained, our most base instincts let free, our nastiest fantasies realized… and it all happens, fittingly enough, in the dark.” The 1970s and 1980s brought us iconic horror and thriller films such as “Jaws”, “Gremlins”, and “Poltergeist”, which left countless theater-goers forever bonded through collective terror at the surprise of unexpected jump-scares in darkened theaters.

Main Street U.S.A. was Inspired by early 1900’s America, particularly Walt Disney’s childhood home of Marceline, Missouri, and serves as a bridge between the familiar, and the fantasy and adventure which await guests further inside the park. Walt used Main Street U.S.A. as a testing ground for his concept of themed partnerships, where companies participated both as partners behind the scenes as well as on-stage within the Disneyland park. The early years of Main Street saw unique shops such as the Wurlitzer Music Hall and Crystal Arcade, as well as attractions like “The Disneyland Railroad” and “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln”. While attractions and shops have come and gone, the spirit of Main Street U.S.A. has remained mostly unchanged since the park first opened in 1955. The land continues to serve as the gateway to Disneyland and welcomes countless guests with its turn of the century American charm.

No Warranties: NO WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO ANY DESCRIPTION IN THE CATALOGUE OR ON THE DAY OR AUCTION. Bidders are urged to view the lots before bidding on them. Descriptions are only being presented for the benefit of those bidders who have not had the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding and no description in the catalogue shall create any warranty. Color variations are to be expected and are not the basis for any return of any lot. Auctioneer is only selling the right, title, and interest of any lot that has been consigned to the auctioneer by virtue of any consignment agreements. The auctioneer disclaims any warranty of fitness or merchantability. 32. Disclaimer of Damages; Sole Remedies: Auctioneer disclaims any damages, consequential or otherwise. Auctioneer shall not be responsible for consequential damages, incidental damages, compensatory damages, or any other damages. Up to the date that the auctioneer pays the consignor (45 days after the close of the auction sessions), and in the event that Auctioneer cannot deliver a lot, or if it is established that the lot lacks title, or some other transfer or condition issue is claimed, the sole remedy of the Bidder up to a date six months after the close of the auction sessions shall be the rescission of the sale and the refund of any amount paid by the Buyer. After the consignor is paid by the auctioneer the sole remedy of the Buyer is against the consignor, and vice versa. 33. Statements are Opinions: In consideration of participation in the auction, and the placing of a bid, Bidder expressly releases auctioneer, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, outside experts, and attorneys the (”RELEASEES”) from any and all claims, causes of action, in law or in equity, direct or indirect, known or unknown that he/she/it may have with respect to the auction, the catalogue, the conduct of the auction, or the lots being purchased. By not complying with the terms of this Release, Bidder waives any and all claims against the RELEASEES. A bidder or buyer acknowledges that there is a risk that subsequent to the execution of this Agreement, one or more of them will discover facts or will discover, suffer, or incur claims and/or damages relating to the subject matter of this release, which were unknown or unanticipated at the time of the auction, which, if known on that date may have materially affected their respective decisions to give the herein release. Despite this knowledge and understanding, each bidder and buyer agrees that it is assuming the risk of such unknown and unanticipated facts and claims, and in connection herewith, each hereby expressly waives any and all rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which section has been explained to and is understood by each party and which reads as follows: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” 34: Arbitration: By placing a bid in the auction, a Bidder agrees to the dispute resolution set forth herein. All disputes shall be arbitrated by the American Arbitration Association in Los Angeles County, California. Costs shall be split equally among all parties. This replaces the right to go to court, including the right to a jury trial. 35. Prohibited Activities: Any agreement between consignors and bidders to sell by private sale any lot, or to effect a non-sale of an item at auction is prohibited and auctioneer reserves the right to collect from the bidder the Buyer’s Premium. 36. Special Notice: Auctioneer has in compliance with Title 2.95 of the California Civil Code, Section 1812.600 posted with the California Secretary of State a bond. The auction is being conducted in compliance with Section 2338 of the California Commercial Code and Section 535 of the California Penal Code. 37.

THIS DEALER MAY BE SURETY BONDED OR OTHERWISE INSURED TO ENSURE THE AUTHENTICITY OF ANY COLLECTIBLE SOLD BY THIS DEALER. 38.
