    Grasshoppers (Cavallette) "Joan of Arc" Signed Production Cel Setup (Bruno Bozzetto, 1990). This humorous nine-minute look at "war through the ages" by Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto (Allegro Non Troppo) was nominated for an Academy Award. The short is included in the second volume of Spike and Mike's Festival of Animation, in 1993. Here's a very cool and rare 3-cel setup from the "European Medieval" period of the film, featuring the execution of Joan of Arc. The top cel has a word balloon caption added ("I think always to Spike"), and is hand-signed by Mr. Bozzetto. Image sizes are roughly 3.5", 3.75" for Joan at the stake. Fine condition. From the Spike and Mike Festival of Animation Archives.
