Description

    Donnie Dunagan Signed "Bambi" Contract. This is a true piece of magical Hollywood history - the contract that five-year old Donnie Dunagan signed May 28, 1940 to provide the voice of the fawn in the beloved Disney classic Bambi (1942). he ten-page contract lists its 27 points, sets Dunagan's pay at $50 per day for every day he works and is signed by Dunagan, as well as by a Disney secretary producer, a witness, and Dunagan's mother. The contract noted that, since Dunagan was a minor, the agreement had to be submitted to the Superior Court of the State of California for approval, and Heritage includes that legal packet as well - signed by Dunagan and his mother, as well as Disney vice-president Gunther Lessing and attorney for petitioner Thomas Butterworth. Also in the packet is Dunagan's first Disney pay stub, dated May 28, 1940. Finally, there's a wonderful 8" x 10" still portrait of three-year old Donnie (in white tuxedo and top hat), signed (actually printed) "Donnie Dunagan Hollywood, Calif. 1938." Hand-written on the verso are his (then) ) vital statistics - height, weight, vocabulary (3,000 words), etc., including the notation that he was "Recently judged 100% perfect in health, beauty and personality." Some tattering on the border of the Superior Court petition filing page, pin holes in the four photo borders and some residue from Dunagan's scrapbook on the verso of the pay stub and the picture - overall Excellent condition. Disney material is always desirable, and this intimate packet offers inside Disneyana in its most classic form. From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
