1966 Paris MATCH Magazine Walt Disney Dies MICKEY MOUSE Cries

This image effectively captured the world's sorrow as news circled the globe of Walt Disney's unexpected passing on December 15, 1966. Rarely has the entire world experienced such emotion at the passing of a single source of light from within the entertainment community.

It is improbable that the likes of Walt Disney will ever pass this way again. Still today, nothing captures the emotion of those days more effectively than the cover image from this vintage French magazine. PARIS MATCH is in French, and is in fair condition. Still bound, yet the cover's binding is quite worn and separating, as shown; a worthy candidate for preservation, particularly in light of this magazine's rarity.

Oversized magazine is 10" x 13.5". Entitled, "Adieu a Walt Disney - Il a Bati Un Empire Sur Une Souris" the opening image in the article may be familiar to Disney historians and collectors. This photo shoot was prepared in conjunction with the RCA Television promotion tied to Walt's growing relationship with NBC and his new program "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color." While several other images from that photo shoot have become quite familiar, this particular image has never been published within the USA. Walt Disney... surrounded by children... in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle... all under the watchful gaze of the Disneyland cast of characters. This image is Disney perfection... viewed from a slightly different perspective.

This is a widely recognised, but rarely found original issue of an historic magazine; a worthy addition for the finest Walt Disney archive or museum collection. Please click here to ask a question
