    Description

    Edward G. Robinson and Peter Lorre Custom Cels Group of 2 (Warner Brothers, 2009). Great pair of images inspired by the classic Tex Avery-directed Warner Brothers short Hollywood Steps Out (1941). In this star-studding parody, we see Robinson ask Ann Sheridan "How's the Oompf girl tonight?" while Peter Lorre exclaims while watching bubble dancer Sally Strand, "I haven't seen such a beautiful bubble since I was a child!" These are hand-inked, hand-painted images on cel by artist Martha Sigall (1917 - 2014), who worked for producer Leon Schlesinger from 1936 until 1944, and eventually spent 53 years in the animation industry. Figure sizes are 5.5" and 6", with gold and white paper backgrounds. The cels are matted with openings of 7.5" x 10.5" (Lorre) and 7.25" x 9.5" (Robinson). Both are framed with glass in matching frames that measure 12.25" x 15.25". Frames are sold as-is. Fine condition.
