Lot 609: Unique matte-finish 14 x 11 photo of Disney and Channing with Maurice Chevalier, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Maurice, avec mon appreciation, Walt Disney," and in blue ballpoint, "Maurice dearest, How lucky can a girl get?…being between the first Gentlemen of France and America! With devotion and xxx's, Carol Channing." Diagonal creases to the upper right corner, staple holes and a crease to upper left, and some other trivial creases and soiling, otherwise fine condition. Although Chevalier did not appear in a Disney film until 1962—the live-action In Search of the Castaways—Disney had actually caricatured the French actor-singer in the 1933 Silly Symphonies episode 'Mickey's Gala Premiere.' An excellent association piece between entertainment icons.
