Oooh multi-plane camera...

I don't care how much CG they incorporate into their films, there's nothing as beautiful and effective as the multi-plane shots in Bambi and Pinocchio.

Great photos. I love those old Disney movies the best.

I can't help looking at the Roy Disney photo (with all the merchandise) and thinking, "What do I want??".

I just wasn't sure who that was with all the merchandise. I appreciate the ID on Roy Disney. Thanks BLUE and MAJOR!

I am trying to figure out the worth of all that stuff in today's money. Not really! But I am sure it all would get some real bucks.
