Hollywood Steps Out Gary Cooper and Shirley Temple Production Cel and Production Background Setup (Warner Brothers, 1941). This setup is a sweet treat! The Tex Avery-directed short features caricatures of Hollywood celebrities and it premiered on 5-24-41. The short included a "who's who" of Hollywood at the time, including: Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Greta Garbo, the Marx Brothers, and more. This hand-painted cel stars Gary Cooper and Shirley Temple, having a little dance. It was actually edited out from the finished short and not used at all! The cel is placed on an actual hand-painted production background of the famed Hollywood nightclub (and setting for the cartoon) "Ciro's." This background appeared right after the Conga Line segment and is used when Caesar Romero is with Rita Hayworth at about the 5 minute mark. Cooper and Temple measure a combined 7.25" x 6" on the 11" x 8.5" matted background in the 19.5" x 17" Plexiglas front frame. In Fine condition.
