This magazine was published by Walt Disney Studios for its employees in the services. It contains many original illustrations, article about the studio and its war efforts and an incredible laid in “pin-up” poster of nudes drawn in cartoon. This page contains the names, addresses and ranks of all Disney employees in the armed services on the reverse. The cover depicts Donald Duck throwing a tomato in Adolf Hitler’s face (alluding to the now suppressed academy-award winning cartoon “Der Feuhrer’s Face”). A wonderful, patriotic and graphic documentation of the home effort and a rare and highly unusual piece of Disneyana. Unrecorded in ULS.
