DescriptionCool World Production Cel on Master Production Background (Paramount, 1992). This mix of animation and live action inspired by the success of Roger Rabbit features such a-list stars of the time as Brad Pitt, Gabriel Byrne and Kim Bassinger. It served as animator Ralph Bakshi's return to feature films after nine years. Offered here is an original Master production setup from this cult classic. It features hand-painted production cel of one of Slash's gang in a wedding dress from the 47:41 mark. She is in full-figure and measures approximately 4" x 5" on a 12 field cel. The cel is over an original hand-painted Master background that appears near the end of the film at the 1:36:00 mark. The setup works flawlessly together and truly capture the 1940's character and animation style that pervaded this off-beat Bakshi film. It's in a 19" x 15" frame under Plexiglas with a 12" x 9.5" mat opening and a studio issued Certificate of Authenticity is in a sleeve on the back. Condition is Very Good and frame is sold as-is.
