Test Screening

Looks like Walt Disney is getting ready for a screening in one of his sweatbox theaters on the Burbank studio lot. The photo was probably taken in the early to mid 1940s. 
And look at the audience, men and women in equal numbers. I wonder what film they are about to watch.


  1. Good old Uncle Walt.....always with the cigarette in his hand.....
    Thank you for sharing these extras too.

    1. Just like my own father and everybody else in those days.

    2. Yes, unfortunately. And probably he didn't use filters at all.
      Had he lived another 10 years, he would have completed the original EPCOT city. That project was a bit colossal, I have to admit, but it was a beautiful one and ahead of time, as everything he did.

  2. I was looking at the picture trying to figure out what is between the audiences seats and I noticed a face in the window. It made me laugh, he looks so serious.
