    Mother Goose Goes Hollywood Clark Gable and George Arliss Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). Outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted Courvoisier production cel of Clark Gable and George Arliss. They are part of the band in the musical sequence for the "Old Woman in the Shoe" musical number. You can see it about 5:56 into the short. After Clark Gable plays his flute, he then wiggles his trademark large ears -- and his tie! This Academy Award-nominated short was directed by Wilfred Jackson and released on 12/23/38. It was some of Disney's most innovative animation at the time. The stunning cel images are on a Courvoisier prepared background, with nice full-figure images of 6". Framed with glass and matted with a mat opening of 11" x 8"; overall frame size is 18" x 15.75". Slight cel lift off background. Extremely rare! Very Good condition.
