    Description

    The Fox and the Crow Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Screen Gems/Columbia, c. 1940s). The Fox and the Crow debuted in 1941 in the Frank Tashlin-directed Color Rhapsody short, The Fox and the Grapes. This is an outstanding and very rare pair of production backgrounds from The Fox and the Crow series. They are from the Cecil Beard Archives. He was one of the main writers on this series, and wrote for the well-remembered DC comic book series as well. Both backgrounds are gouache on board measuring 12" x 10" and 10" x 13". Both are night scenes, including a stunning tropical mountaintop and a close-up of some mushrooms. The mushroom painting is marked Sc 556 Co.47. Minor handling and edge wear; one has a paperclip mark in top border. Good condition. From the Cecil Beard Estate.
