    Description

    The Ghost Town Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). While prospecting out West, Gandy Goose and Sourpuss wind up in a Ghost Town saloon in this Mannie Davis-directed short, which was first shown on 9/22/44. Here are two nice hand-painted production backgrounds of the saloon interiors. The first is noted as 28 in the upper right, and shows the piano a ghost is playing; it can be seen at the 4:24 mark. The second piece is noted as 34A; it shows a slot machine that Gandy and Sourpuss play. It's seen at the 5:21 mark. Both backgrounds are painted with gouache/watercolor on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, each with a studio stamp on the reverse. Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
