Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Swedish Movie Poster (measures 47" x 100") (Learn More)

Gulliver's Travels, the 1939 Dave Fleischer full-length feature family fantasy adventure animated animation cartoon ("Based on Jonathan Swift's Immortal Tale"; "Produced by Max Fleischer"; "Directed by Dave Fleischer") featuring the voices of Jessica Dragonete, Lanny Ross, Pinto Colvig, Jack Mercer, and Sam Parker. Note that this movie by the Fleischer brothers (who had had multiple reel cartoons prior to Walt Disney's first feature, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs") was intended to be the beginning of a long series of Fleischer features, but this did not have the success of Disney's films, so that did not happen! Note that Max Fleischer (along with his brother Dave) were legends and pioneers in animated films. They made the very first sound cartoon in 1924, beating Walt Disney by several years. They had great success with their Out of the Inkwell cartoons, Popeye, Betty Boop, and much more, including the Superman cartoons, widely regarded as the finest cartoons ever made! But after Walt Disney made Snow White, the Fleischers made Gulliver's Travels, which did not do well at the box office, and their next major project, Mr. Bug Goes To Town, had the bad fortune to be released two days before the attack on Pearl Harbor, and it also did poorly. At this same time, the Fleischer brothers had a major falling out, and in 1942, they split completely. After they made the last of their Superman cartoons in 1942, Paramount ceased control of their studio. Each of the brothers made a few more cartoons, but their careers were essentially over.

Important Added Info: Note that this Swedish poster was printed in 3 sections.

Condition: very good to fine. each of the three sections has extra foldlines as though it has been folded in several different ways over the years; there are minor creases along all the folds; there is a clean 5" tear in the top left of the poster running down into Gulliver's hair, and a similar 5" tear in the top right of the poster running into the "I" of "GULLIVER'S"; there are small tears and tiny paper loss on some of the foldlines and around the edges of the poster, but overall, the poster seems to have survived in really excellent condition, especially given its age and its very large size!
