    Donnie Dunagan "Bambi" and "Tower of London" Mementoes. This fascinating packet includes a letter on "Walt Disney Productions" letterhead (featuring Mickey Mouse), dated November 11, 1942, addressed to the Dunagan family and apologizing that a Los Angeles newspaper had not properly credited Donnie as "the voice of Bambi as a fawn." The letter is signed by Joe Reddy of the Disney Publicity Department and includes its orignal envelope, with "Walt Disney Productions" (and Mickey Mouse's picture) in the return address and its $.03 stamp. There are also three album pages (six sides), with three of the sides devoted to Bambi, including a May 31, 1940 newspaper story (with Donnie's picture) headlined "Disney Picks Donnie for Bambi model;" also ads for the film's Los Angeles opening, charming newspaper and magazine pictures from the film and an ad for "Bambi Fashions." The other three sides of the scrapbook pages are devoted to The Forgotten Woman and Tower of London, including the Hollywood Reporter notice that Donnie had been cast in Tower of London. Scrapbook pages measure 10" x 13" and have border wear, for overall Fine + condition; the Disney Studios letter is in Excellent condition. Wonderful vintage material related to the Golden Era of both Disney and Universal Studios! From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
