Donald Duck Presents, the 1940s Australian stock daybill poster used by theaters when showing Walt Disney animated animation cartoon films featuring Donald Duck. This poster had a large blank area in the lower half in which the current films being shown could be added.

Important Added Info: Note that this is a stock poster that RKO used in Australia for 1940s showings of Walt Disney Donald Duck cartoons. RKO would print many copies of this full-color stock cartoon poster, but with a blank title area at the bottom. Then they would have some copies of the full-color poster imprinted with a title from a specific cartoon, and distribute those posters to theaters showing that particular cartoon (in this case, "Trombone Trouble").

What IS linenbacking? "Linenbacking" is a process that is used to preserve movie posters (the best restorers de-acidify the poster during the restoration process), and to make them far easier to display (it is much easier and less expensive to frame a linenbacked poster). When linenbacking is done correctly, it adds to the value of the poster, and is NOT a defect! Note that the specific poster in this auction was well linenbacked, but the restorer did not attempt to make the poster look "perfect". You may still see some slight evidence of the restoration and/or the defects when you look at the poster from inches away, and you may be able to see slight signs of restoration even from a distance. But the poster now looks quite nice, and I think most collectors would be quite happy to display this poster on their wall. In general, know that we received many of the linenbacked posters we are currently selling already linenbacked, but we have examined every poster EXTREMELY carefully, and we did our best to describe what condition the poster was in PRIOR to restoration, the defects the poster had PRIOR to restoration (in the "Pre-Restoration Defects & Quality of Restoration" section), any unrestored defects, and, when it seemed worth noting, something about the quality of the restoration itself. Many other auction houses claim to match what we do in this area, but EVERY person who regularly buys movie posters from major auctions can tell you this is just not the case! We never intentionally overgrade a single item, we never "accidentally" miss defects, and we never enhance a single image!

Condition: very good. The poster was never folded. It had creases, tears, and some small paper loss scattered down the left border. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
