Lady and the Tramp Production Cel Setup and Master Pan Background (Walt Disney, 1955). "In the whole history of the world, there is but one thing money cannot buy... to wit -- the wag of a dog's tail." This Josh Billings quote is featured in the opening graphics in this classic animated feature film. Its three canine stars, Jock, Tramp, and Lady are spotlighted in these wonderful hand-inked, hand-painted production cels. The cels are trimmed to image and mounted on a huge Master hand-painted pan production background, which can be viewed after the scene where Lady and Tramp chase chickens, and are running away from the dog catcher. Lady is caught, and an unknowing Tramp scoots behind the circus billboard, not aware of Lady's capture. The dogs are 3" to 4". It's a truly beautiful background painting, measuring approximately 34" x 11". The stunning backgrounds in the film were painted by Claude Coats, Ray Huffine, Dick Anthony, Ralph Hulett, Thelma Witmer, Al Dempster, Jim Trout, Brice Mack, and Eyvind Earle. This background alone is a mini-masterpiece! The setup is nicely framed with Plexiglas, for an overall size of 45.5" x 23". Fine condition.
