That Rocketeer Costume
Back here I mentioned the unseen-on-the-book-cover-in-question Rocketeer costume, so here's a chance to see the actual costume as lovingly preserved in the Walt Disney Archives. On the D23 website, Disney archivist Rob Klein has written about the unique costume (complete with rocket back) worn by Bill Campbell in the terrific 1991 Disney film (the original poster is pictured at left), and tells you how you can see some great photographs of this amazing movie artifact (only for the next month or so, so don't delay). While you're there, check out the rest of the D23 website—it's loaded with fun and fascinating content, it's updated every day, and it's free and open to everyone.
