    Grand Canyonscope Donald Duck and Burro Color Model Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1954). "Welcome to the Grand Canyon. Nature's masterpiece and wonder of the world. Eh... spread out folks, this is CinemaScope!" says Ranger J. Audubon Woodlore to the tourists in the opening scene. Grand Canyonscope was only the second animation short to be shot in CinemaScope. It was directed by Charles Nichols, and released on 12/23/54. This is an original hand-inked hand-painted full 16 field Color Model cel of Donald Duck on his Grand Canyon Tour burro, with his tourist camera. The eyes of the burro are wide due to the Ranger taking a flash photo close to his face. Great full-figure images of 3" and 4". This is a two-cel setup; the effects flash is on a second cel. Matted with an opening of 14" x 10"; overall mat size is 19.5" x 15". Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
