    Description

    Betty Boop's Ups and Downs Painted Background (Max Fleischer, 1932). Rare hand-painted black and white production background of a cabin house porch by Max Kubel, signed by him in the bottom left. Detailed 8.5" x 11.5" image on 3 top peghole background board. Labeled "Scene E/T2-5/20" in the top left corner. The art is from a Betty Boop short directed by Dave Fleischer (released on 10/14/32) that highlighted the Depression, in which she is evicted from her house. The short also starred Bimbo. The background can be seen at about the 1:25 mark in the musical number. Ugo D'Orsi provided some of the animation for this short. The "x" along the lower left was added at the Studio. Minor handling wear; otherwise, in Fine condition.fleischer
