    Henry Calvin's Signed Disney Contract and a Photo of Calvin With Disney. The corpulent, bewhiskered actor who played Sgt. Garcia on Disney's Zorro TV show with such comic gusto signed this 20-page agreement with Walt Disney Productions, dated July 16, 1957. The contract put Calvin on a seven-year pact, during which time he also played in the Disney features Toby Tyler (1960) and Babes in Toyland (1961). Calvin signed in full in blue ink, and the contract is also signed by Disney vice-president W. H. Anderson. There is a bit of doodling on the last page below the signatures -- Very Good condition. Also included in the lot is an 8" x 10" b&w still taken at a party at the Disney Ranch in 1961 and featuring Disney, Calvin, Benny Goodman, Fred MacMurray, Jack Donahue (director of Babes in Toyland), Elliott Reid, and Gene Sheldon. The photo has minor creasing -- Good condition. Wonderful behind-the-scenes artifacts from the Disney studios, devoted to a superb character player. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA. From the Henry Calvin Archive.
