    Description

    Ballet Oop Original Production Cels with Key Master and Master Backgrounds Group of 4 (UPA, 1954). Dance teacher Miss Placement is dismayed to learn that the head of the School of Ballet where she teaches has entered her beginners' class in a contest just three weeks away. She manages to get them ready and they are a huge success. Pleased with that, she next enters all of the school's 1,400 students in a contest where they have to learn "Swan Lake" in just two weeks. This charming short was co-written by the legendary Warner Brothers and Disney caricature artist T. Hee. Presented is a treasure trove of original production setups from this UPA classic. Included are four hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setups and they are presented over hand-painted production backgrounds, some of which are Key Master to the cel or cels paired with them. This is an incredible assortment of production pieces designed in animation's version of mid-century modern style. The entire lot shows light handling, minor paint loss and condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
