DescriptionChevron "Lindbergh" Television Commercial Production Cel Setup and Animation Drawings (Kurtz and Friends, c. 1970s-80s). Charles "Lucky Lindy" Lindbergh made his famous solo nonstop transatlantic flight from Long Island, New York to Paris on May 20-21, 1927. Chevron (then known as Standard Oil) was with him on that historic flight, and this original hand-inked hand-painted 16 field 3-cel setup is from a Chevron commercial commemorating this event. The cel shows a great image of Lindbergh getting ready for the flight as his plane, the Spirit of St. Louis is wheeled out. Lindy stands 10.5" tall, while the plane is 9.5" wide. The airplane hanger background is a print, added for presentation purposes. Two matching animation drawings of Lindy and the plane are included; these are in graphite with red and blue penciling. The top cel and both drawings have been hand-signed by animation director Bob Kurtz. Overall condition is Very Good with minor handling and edge wear.
