    Eyvind Earle (attributed) Sleeping Beauty Interior of Castle Painted Pan Background with "Flora" Production Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1959). "Poor King Stefan and the Queen. They will be broken-hearted when they find out." "They're not going to find out! We'll put them all asleep till Rose awakes!" Then the three Fairies take off to sprinkle pixie dust and put the entire castle and kingdom asleep. Here is an amazing hand-painted pan Master production background of the castle interior, from when the Fairies enter. You can see this background at about the 54:35 mark. It's noted on the bottom border "2082 Seq15.0 Sc24." The backside of this background is stamped, "Return this material to Art Props Dept." The background measures 34" x 12", with the painted area taking up 29" x 11". A tiny hand-painted production cel and "glow" effects cel of Flora flying with her wand out is over the background. The cel appears to be Key to the background. The magnificent backgrounds for this film were painted by a stellar line-up of talent: Eyvind Earl, Frank Armitage, Al Dempster, Bill Layne, Dick Anthony, Richard Thomas, Thelma Witmer, Walt Peregoy, Ralph Hulett, Fil Mottola, and Anthony Rizzo. This background is believed to be from the hand of Eyvind Earle. The detail of the castle, the throne with the King and Queen, and all the people inside the castle is simply breathtaking. Minor handling wear; otherwise, in Fine condition.
