About This Item

Santa Monica: RKO Radio Pictures, 1954. Collection of six vintage studio still photographs for the 1954 stop motion animated film.

Based on, and incorporating music from, the 1983 opera by composer Engelbert Humperdinck, with a libretto by his sister Adelhied Wette, itself based on the German fairy tale first published in 1812 in "Grimm's Fairy Tales." Produced by Michael Myerberg at his New York studio and originally released independently before being picked up by RKO for a Christmas 1954 release nationally, the film would go on to become a staple of holiday viewing. Notable as the first feature length American animated film not made with traditional cel animation techniques, and the first non-Disney feature length animated film released since 1941's "Mr. Bug Goes to Town."

10 x 8 inches. Very Good. Pinholes to the edges, with light edgewear and soil.
