    Mother Goose Goes Hollywood Greta Garbo Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). "I want so much to be alone!" says Greta Garbo as she plays "See Saw Margery Daw" with Edward G. Robinson. This is an outstanding trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Miss Garbo from that scene. You can find it at about 4:49 into the short. This is an original Courvoisier cel setup. The image measures 5.5", on a Courvoisier hand-painted background. The original Courvoisier sticker is on back of the mat. This Academy Award-nominated short was directed by Wilfred Jackson and released on 12/23/38. It had great Golden Age of Hollywood caricatures, many done by T. Hee. Garbo is a very hard-to-find character in this short. Matted with an opening size of 6.5" x 6.5" with an overall mat size of 9" x 9". Minor handling wear and surface dirt on background. A few specks of paint separation in sleeve, but overall Good condition. From the Ray Patterson Archives.
