"Mail Pilot" (1933) - Early Book Effort (20 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.

While not a sketch, this "Mail Pilot" book represents one of the earlier cross-marketing efforts of Disney. The book I have is not in very good shape, but it makes a great addition to the collection.

  1. I was just looking at a recent "Hake's" auction catalog, and this version of "The Mail Pilot" is supposed to be EXTREMELY rare, with a generic cover that was later replaced with the more common cover.
