    Cool World Detective Nails Production Cel Group of 3 (Ralph Bakshi, 1992). Sequence of three original hand-painted production cels from Ralph Bakshi's neo-noir, Cool World. This film was Bakshi's first feature in nine years. The character of Detective Nails (a "Doodle") was policeman Brad Pitt's partner in the film. Here, Nails removes his hat in tribute to a fallen countryman - and sobs. Though famous for the (once-shocking) vulgarity in his films, Bakshi was also a master at touching, poignant scenes. Detective Nails stands 3.5" tall. Cels in sequence are 12 field, 3-peghole, and are all in Fine condition.
