This short was directed by Jack King and released on 5/1/42. It was co-written by Carl Barks, Jack Hannah and Harry Reeves. This cel can be seen around the 5:35 mark when Pete says "You're helpless. You ain't no soldier!" Great 4.5" image of Donald Duck in uniform, in a Courvoisier setup with custom hand-painted background. The setup is matted with an opening of 7" x 6" in a glass-front frame measuring 16" x 14". The original Courvoisier COA is on back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is, artwork has minor handling but is in overall Very Good condition.
