Description

Society Dog Show (1939) poster, US


Unframed 47 3/4 x 33 3/4 in. (121.3 x 85.7 cm)

Framed 41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)


In 1936 RKO Radio Pictures took over the distribution of Walt Disney animations from United Artists. Society Dog Show was an eight minute Technicolor animation, which was released in America in February 1939. In the film Mickey enters Pluto in an up-market dog show, which all goes wrong when Pluto falls for a posh pooch, and attacks the judge for making fun of him. However, Pluto wins the heart of his love interest after saving her from a fire, and is heralded a hero. The simple colour palette is used with great effect in this charming poster, which depicts a large image of Mickey grooming an unimpressed Pluto in readiness for a high society dog show. No more than three of these posters are known to have survived.
