I recently acquired the above three documents outlining a proposed animation sequence to be done by Disney for the 1944 Sam Goldwyn movie UP IN ARMS starring Danny Kaye. I haven't found anything regarding Disney's involvement but to my surprise I found that the Gunther Lessing letter (which I had e-mailed Didier Ghez some time ago for posting) seems to confirm it.
I don't remember ever seeing the movie, does anybody know if the sequence in question was ever produced? or, know where I can find a clip?
1943 fits into the period where Disney's finances were at it's lowest ebb during the war, it would be interesting to know how many non Disney projects the studio was involed in. From the silent days up to the war. We know there were animated titles for Leon Schlesinger (would be cool to find that footage) and THE HOLLYWOOD PARTY. Any thoughts?
