    Little Hiawatha Bear Cub Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1937). A sweet Silly Symphonies short directed by David Hand, Little Hiawatha tells the story of a young Indian boy out on his first hunt, who finds he hasn't the heart to kill his prey. This is the memorable scene where Hiawatha follows a set of bear tracks that lead him face to face (or, quite literally, "nose to nose") with a bear cub. This is an original Courvoisier set-up, with meticulously hand-trimmed cels placed over a specially prepared background. The set-up is matted with an opening of 8.75" x 7", with the hand-lettered title, a common Courvoisier touch. Framed with glass to an overall size of 17" x 16", with the original Courvoisier label attached to the reverse. A very slight bit of glue discoloring shadows the background behind the bear cub, but the paint is Fine.
