Autographed Photos Brochure - Adriana Caselotti

Selling signed photographs was an important source of income in her later years for Adriana Caselotti, the original voice of Snow White. In an earlier Archive entry, we saw a variety of autographed pieces, similar to this 8x10 below.

On August 26, 1994, Adriana penned a letter announcing a series of nine different signed black & white glossy 8x10 photos that she was offering for sale. The letter was photocopied--along with a homemade brochure featuring images of all nine items--then sent out to interested fans,

In a handwritten note on the back of this brochure, Adriana explains to a fan why it wouldn't be fair to offer him a free autograph when everyone else has to pay a fee.

Special thanks to Greg Philip of A Lost Film for sharing these images from his collection.

"This Week In Cleveland" - Harry Stockwell

This Week In Cleveland was a weekly magazine highlighting events and entertainment in the Cleveland area. Harry Stockwell, the voice of Snow White's Prince, appeared on the cover of the August 31, 1940 issue. He was in town performing at the Vogue Room inside the Hotel Hollenden.

An ad for Harry's show.

The "Down the Avenue" column included details on Harry's performance, mentioning that he would be singing numbers from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
