With all due respect for the 2019 remake, the original 1955 animated classic "Lady and the Tramp" will always have a special place in my heart. No matter how realistic the dogs seem in the new one, my heart belongs to those two doggone cute cartoons from the past.
It's my favorite Disney movie of all time, holding a special place in my heart. I first saw it when my first dog passed away when I was seven. When my furry friend said goodbye, I found these two new ones onscreen. Today, even my kids love the film. I'm not sure if I'll take them to see the remake though; I'm afraid it might ruin the original one for them.
In all honesty, my devotion to the original classic is so strong, it once got me driving all over California. As an autograph hound and movie memorabilia collector, I usually get tips on where certain classic movie items with important signatures can be bought and sold. A few years ago, in a span of about three to four months, I received tip after tip of copies of the "Lady and the Tramp" movie poster with autographs from the original cast. Good thing was, they were all in one state. The bad thing? The state's the biggest in the country.
Still, I traveled around California just to get my hands on such priceless memorabilia. And no, one just wasn't enough for me! As someone who likes sharing his passion with others, I wanted to get as many of these signed copies as possible.
And so, the posters you now see online are products of road-trip after road-trip. Were they worth paying my weight in gasoline, food, and overnight Airbnb's? You bet! Not just for me, but for my kids and for you guys too!
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
