Description

Hollywood enthusiastically “did their part” to support the massive World War II effort. This magazine was published by Walt Disney Studios for their employees serving overseas. The cover illustration is taken after their academy award-winning cartoon “Der Fuehrer’s Face,” originally titled “Donald Duck in Nutzi Land.” Despite the accolades, because of the depiction of Donald as a disgruntled Nazi, Disney took the film out of circulation after the war. It was finally re-released in 2004.
