    Night Lantern Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1930). The 12th Silly Symphony short entitled Night was directed by Walt Disney. It was released on 7/31/30. Many believe it influenced a later film, the groundbreaking Old Mill. This is a rare original hand-painted black and white production background. It can be seen at about the 2:10 mark, when the bugs are playing with the candle flame within the lantern. Background is 9.5" x 11", marked in the bottom border "OK Scene 3." The way it is painted, there seems to be a glow coming out of the lantern glass! Very unusual to find black and white Silly Symphony background artwork. Pinholes in corners. Minor handling. Very Good condition.
