    Lord of the Rings Gandalf and Frodo Production Cel Setup on Master Production Background Signed by Ralph Bakshi (Bakshi/United Artists, 1978). This Ralph Bakshi-directed adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings, comprised stories from both The Fellowship of the Ring and the first half of The Two Towers. This film became a cult classic and a mainstay of midnight movies for decades. It was also an influence on Peter Jackson's trilogy, as detailed in the DVD extras of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Here is a magnificent hand-painted production cel setup of Gandalf and Frodo. The character images fill the 12 field 2-cel setup and are presented over an original hand-painted production background. Adding to the rarity of this one-of-a-kind master setup is Ralph Bakshi's signature in the uppr right corner. It's a truly unique piece featuring the lead characters in Tolkien's trilogy and certain to appeal to not only to his fans, but Bakshi's as well. It is in a 19" x 15" frame under glass with a mat opening of 12" x 9". Minor handling and condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
