    Eyvind Earle (attributed) Sleeping Beauty Prince Phillip and the Dragon with Master Painted Pan Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1959). "Shield of Virtue and Sword of Truth... these weapons of righteous will triumph over evil!" Outstanding hand-inked and hand-painted production cels of Prince Phillip with his Shield of Virtue and his Sword of Truth doing battle with Maleficent as a Dragon. The cels are trimmed to image, with amazing large images of 9" and 11", placed on a hand-painted pan Master production background. This is from the scene where Phillip is cornered by the wall in the forest of thorns and the Good Fairies yell, "Climb up this way." He will climb, lose his shield and throw the sword into the chest of the dragon to defeat Maleficent. This can be seen at around the one hour and nine minute mark. Backgrounds were painted in this film by Eyvind Earle, Frank Armitage, Al Dempster, Bill Layne, Dick Anthony, Richard Thomas, Thelma Witmer, Walt Peregoy, Ralph Hulett, Fil Monttola, and Anthony Rizzo. This huge background painting alone is a masterpiece. The setup in matted with an opening size of 34" x 12" and framed using Plexiglas, for an overall size of 46" x 24". Slight curling on the Dragon's head. Very Good condition.
