PAIR OF WILLIS O’BRIEN PHOTOS. - Pair of Willis O’Brien photographs – a 4 ½ in. x 2 in. hand-trimmed photograph taken during the production of Mighty Joe Young showing all four of the large Joe puppets plus an assortment of the human puppets used (adults and small children). The background has been painted by O’Brien obscuring various crew members posed behind the puppet display (one can see a person’s fingers still in view between the first and second Joe puppet). The second photo measures 5 ½ in. x 4 ¼ in. and depicts the aging Obie sitting by an easel painting a concept for one of his projects. From the personal collection of Willis O’Brien.
