|Research Material for Robin Hood|
I missed the auction! Although I could never have afforded the final figure of £250. It was for a collection of research material for Walt Disney’s live-action Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men, which was made in England in 1951 and released in 1952.
A huge thank you to John Nelson for making me aware of this sale. It is a fantastic piece of - not only film memorabilia - but also a remarkable glimpse into the research and preparation of this wonderful movie.
|Some of the 30 pages of notes|
Unfortunately some of the images are unclear and it it is difficult to read the notes in pencil. It is very frustrating. Perhaps the new owner of this goldmine of information, will read this blog post and share some of the detail!
|Designs of medieval belt pouches|
I will be posting some more images of this fascinating collection soon.
