Vintage Call Sheets - The Parent Trap

You never know what you might find at an estate sale... I came across these odd pieces of paper at a sale in Toluca Lake, CA a few years ago. The home's owner had been a long time Walt Disney Productions employee in the sound department. The papers referenced a movie called  "We Belong Together" starring Haley Mills, but I had never heard of it. I decided to buy them anyway because I got a kick out of seeing Walt Disney's name on a mimeographed sheet (see Executive Producer below). 

When I searched the Internet, I couldn't find a Disney movie called "We Belong Together", and then I discovered that had been a working title for The Parent Trap staring Haley Mills. Now that's a movie that I knew. Apparently Disney held a contest to get names for the movie and the working title, "We Belong Together" was the winner. Legend has it that Walt walked in and started calling it The Parent Trap and a hit was born. 

It's fun to see the handwritten notes and to see which stars were on call that day. 

It just goes to show you that you never know what you'll find at an estate sale...
