Will the Real Doug Fairbanks...

Being a huge movie star in 1932, Mickey Mouse hung out with all the celebrities. He even got autographed pictures of them. In fact, he had two of Doug Fairbanks. I think.

These “photos” are from The Wayward Canary. Fairbanks doesn’t look the same in them, but I can’t figure out another Doug who it may be.

And here’s a picture of Mrs. Fairbanks.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know who is being referred to in the election sign on the fence?

As usual, Disney never credited his artists on the early shorts.

    When you figure that Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. were co-founders of United Artists, which started to distribute the Disney cartoons around this time, it's almost certainly Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. that's being depicted.
