Evil Queen with Panther Concept Art

The evil queen of Snow White had a pet panther. This is a piece of concept art from the planning of Snow White. Click on the picture for a large image of it.

The panther never made it in to the picture.

Not sure who the artist is.

The picture was taken through glass at the recently closed Snow White Fairest One of All art exhibit at the Animation building of California Adventure. It was taken through the glass cover and the green-blue light reflection is something that shows up.

Unique Walt Disney Photo

I saw this photo of Walt Disney at a blog called From Mars to Marceline™

It's hard to tell where it was taken or exactly when. It could be in Florida at the beginnings of "The Florida Project" or maybe Anaheim at the time of clearing the orange grove.

Anyone know? It's the sort of thing Michael Barrier or Didier Ghez might know. Seldom does one see a photo of Disney in such a state.

The Mars to Marcelline blog is by Eleonora Duvivier and it contains excerpts from a book she has written called from Mars to Marcelline. She is clearly a huge Disney person and writes poignantly about it. She is from Brazil originally and her first entry on Disney Nationality is intersting.


Update: Didier Ghez tells me this picture was taken in Greece during the filming of the 1964 release the Moon-Spinners (review at Ultimate Disney).
