BoxOffice, September 16, 1939

Another extremely light on hits issue of BoxOffice. It does give additional evidence that the Mickey Mouse Nabisco short played at the SFWF.

(midway) "Metro's cartoon department, 48 strong, dropped pencils and brushes and took up golf clubs for their annual tournament at the Brentwood Heights country club. Winners were given merchandise orders on a local men's furnishings store "

p74B: "Golden Gate International Exposition for advertising purposes run the gauntlet from animated cartoons to highly technical and scientific productions. Walt Disney's speshort, in which Mickey Mouse gets top billing, serves to draw hundreds of fairers into National Biscuit Company's little theatre, and is helping to sell plenty of cookies. Over one hundred other exhibitors are showing films on the Island."
