'All Color Walt Disney Show', Salem, 1952


It’s the summer of 1952 and in Salem, Oregon in the USA at the Capitol Theatre an ‘All Color Walt Disney Show' is advertised. It is the live action ‘Story of Robin Hood’ accompanied by one of the award winning ‘True Life Adventures’ series ‘Water Birds,’ along with the cartoon short ‘The Little House.'

If you look carefully, the posters can be seen in the display cases around the theatre.

great rare shot clement. i still maintain our English poster knocks spots off the American one. good shot though.promotion for films has remaind very high over the years , with The story of Robin Hood" there was thankfully lots of it.

Terrific to see this and to see the films shown in support which we have discussed so often.A sign of the time also with it being promoted as an 'All Color' show - that wouldnt have any impact today but it certainly would be an attraction in those days. Would be good if we could get hold of the Box Office figures of the time - I have a feeling this film did very well on a Worldwide scale.

Still hunting for any information on those box office figures Neil. But the fact that he continued with Sword & The Rose etc showed that Disney must have had major success with Robin Hood.
