In August 1923, a 21-year-old Walt Disney moved from Kansas City to Los Angeles “with $40 in my pocket and a coat and a pair of trousers that didn’t match.” He had been working for a few years in drawing and animation and hoped to become a movie director in Hollywood, but he couldn’t find the kind of work he was looking for.

“One half of my suitcase had my shirts and underwear and things and the other half had my drawing materials,” Disney was quoted as saying, according to the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. “I would have liked to have been a director, [but] before I knew it I had my drawing board out. I started back at the cartoons.”

Disney quickly sold the “Alice Comedies,” a series of shorts that mixed animation and live action, to a national distributor. The success allowed Walt and Roy to move in October 1923 from their uncle’s garage into the Kingswell Avenue offices.
