(Disney, c.1950s) A vintage Davy Crockett Auto-Magic Picture Gun single frame projector. Harkening back to a more innocent era, this metal gun-shaped toy opens vertically on hinges to reveal a battery compartment, a track for film strips, a lightbulb to illuminate the frames, and an adjustable magnifying lens “muzzle.” Pressing the trigger advances the film frame and activates the lightbulb. It retains its original Davy Crockett-themed box containing a form fitted cardboard insert for storing the gun and boxes of film. The insert can be removed from the box and flipped over for use as a screen on which to project Picture Gun images and is printed with a blank white field for this purpose. The original instruction manual is present. Also included are (7) film strips: one is installed in the gun and (6) are in two original boxes. The Picture Gun measures 6”x1” and 3.5” tall and is in very good condition. The box measures 6.5”x9.25” and 3” deep. It exhibits some darkening, soiling, a 1”x1.75” patch of surface loss to the lid, tearing to insert, and general wear. The Picture Gun has been tested and is fully functional.
