Beautiful Xmas gift from Jim Korkis' collection:

[Here's an unusual photo from 1933. I never think of Walt posing with other celebrities although he often did in the Thirties. Also, it was my understanding that Walt wasn't necessarily a big fan of President Roosevelt so it is interesting to see him posing with Roosevelt's son who apparently is returning from a trip for a quickie divorce in Nevada. You'll notice that this is in Chicago where Walt was born.

I bet there is more to this story and maybe some of the readers of your blog can fill in some of the blanks. ]

Interesting photo.

I wonder what Disney and Schenk doing in Nevada?

At the time the photo was taken, Schenk was the head of United Artists. Disney had changed film distributors in 1931, moving from Columbia over to United Artists. U.A. distributed Disney films until Disney moved over to R.K.O. in late 1936.
