Walt - late 30s?

I recently picked up this photo from e-bay, it looks like a candid from the late 30s or early 40s. Does anybody have any ideas as to where and when the photo was taken?

The gentleman to the right of Walt Disney I believe is noted South American artist F. Molina Campos - which might date this photo closer to between 1941-45.

Iteresting, then this may well have been taken on the South American trip. I should really sit down and reaad South of the Border with Walt Disney. Thanks for the insight.

with F. Molina Campos Argentinean artist F. Molina Campos joined Walt Disney Studios in 1942. At the time, Disney Studios were producing three short film projects set in Argentina. Campos was known for his paintings of the traditional gauchos of the Pampas. His paintings were often humorous yet iconic images of the gaucho

Check the picture of Walt and Mr Campos at this gallery: Walt seems to be wearing the very same tie!
