Page 5 of a post-production album for 'Mighty Joe Young'. These four watercolours could be by Willis O'Brien as there is a stylistic similarity to some of his other storyboard drawings. This page of the album is the only page to have punch holes on the upper margin suggesting it was previously part of a separate storyboard binding. The album was part of Raymond Durgnat's bequest of books and periodicals to the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies
