1924 Walt Disney and Virginia Davis photo

Stumbled across an interesting site tonight while conducting some research on the internet. Young Hollywood Hall of Fame showcases some of Hollywood's youngest stars going all the way back to 1908. They happen to have a nice page devoted to Disney star Virginia Davis.

The above image was taken at Santa Monica Beach during the filming of a 1924 Alice Comedies titled Alice's Day At Sea. Virginia Davis is seated second from the left, a young Walt Disney sits to her left, while Virginia's mom (seated) and dad (standing) appear on the far right side.

Click on the above image to see a larger version. If you look closely you'll see a dog on the left side of the fire pit standing on its hind legs. Walt Disney is smiling, while the dog seems to be the focus of everyone's attention.

Be sure to check out the Young Hollywood Hall of Fame for more great Virginia Davis images.

Terrific photo! Looks like it's a lunch break during shooting. Folks seem to be holding either plates, cups or food.

I agree. And judging by the fact there aren't too many shadows, I would hazard a guess it's probably close to noon. Thanks for stopping by!
