"Mail Pilot" (1933) - Concepts of Mickey & Pete (4 of 20)

As a pilot, I tended to pick up items with an aerospace theme. The 1933 film "Mail Pilot" caught my attention and I ended picking up a number of items from the film. I thought I share the group with you.

This was an interesting mix of images -- almost model sheet images of Mickey & Pete. I liked the rough feel of the characters and the more detailed sketch of Pete in his plane.
