Gracey's Duel



This vintage staged publicity shot was stamped for a September 1969 release, coinciding with the recent opening of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Imagineer Yale Gracey is shown posing with one of his special effects, the pistol dueling gent visible in the Ballroom. Here's a contemporary shot of the effect and how it looks today.

Publicity shots! Another favorite type of photo. Interesting how the publicity photo and contemporary shot show a different style picture frames and attire worn by the pistol dueling gent. Thanks for sharing, Dave!

Even ghost's clothes wear out after so many years.

In that first photo, the AA figure and Mr Gracey bear a startling resemblance to each other.
