MICKEY MOUSE FRENCH
9.5MM FILM CATALOGUE



Just when you think you have found it all something like this turns up! A whole range of these 9.5mm 'Mickey Mouse' titles turned up on Belgian e-bay during 2009. A bit expensive I had to get a couple of examples, which are shown above. The series appears to be French (the waxed paper packets are made in Paris and my copies came from a French antique dealer); just 10 metre / 30 foot shorts, probably printed on 9.5mm camera film, and all Mickey Mouse cartoons. The little metal spools are non-standard, as they have a circular hole on one side for the spindle (smaller diameter than normal 9.5mm spindles!), and a small oblong slot on the other, presumably for a special take-up drive on the toy projector illustrated on the back of the packets. Despite the 'licence Walt Disney' printed on the front of the packets, I'm sure Disney didn't licence these little films as the quality really is quite poor (I have yet to view them on a screen).

And now in May2016, I have just discovered another example from this rare series! This time it is 20 metres (60 foot) but not sure of the type of spool, as it is offered on French ebay for 94 Euros! I will still keep looking!


Naturally further information, corrections, updates, extra titles are all very welcome. Contact me Grahame Newnham at:-
