Description

The Tell Tale Heart Production Background Illustration by Paul Julian (UPA, 1953). UPA Studio's animated version of Edgar Allen Poe's classic short story was nothing short of classic in its own right. This Ted Parmalee-directed short had a highly stylized look and fantastic narration by actor James Mason. It was nominated for an Academy Award, selected by the National Film Registry in 2001, and ranked #24 in cartoon historian Jerry Beck's The 50 Greatest Cartoons. This hand-painted pan production background features the interior of the house, with a focus on the boarded floor that plays such an important part of the story. It's in gouache on Bristol board measures approximately 20" x 10.25", with a protective acetate sheet taped in place. Fine condition.

UPA Studios: . Animation studio.
