    Sleeping Beauty Prince Phillip and the Dragon Production Cel and Key Master Pan Production Background (Walt Disney, 1959). "Thou sword of truth, fly swift and sure, that evil die and good endure!" says Merryweather, as Prince Phillip does battle with Maleficent as the fire breathing dragon. This is truly outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production setup with cels of Prince Phillip with his Shield of Virtue and Sword of Truth face-to-face with Maleficent as the Dragon. The trimmed-to-image cels are on a pan Key Master (to Phillip) production background of the ledge that has just been created after the dragon's first breath of fire in the battle with the Prince. Backgrounds for this film were done by Eyvind Earle, along with Frank Armitage, Al Dempster, Bill Layne, Dick Anthony, Richard Thomas, Thelma Witmer, Walt Peregoy, Ralph Hulett, Fil Mottola, and Anthony Rizzo. Prince Phillip with sword and shield is an amazing 8" while Maleficent as the Dragon is 12". The background is a masterpiece of art. Key Master cels and background are in a glass-front frame of 39" x 22" in a custom mat with an opening of 29" x 11". The background painting alone is a pure masterpiece. Frame is sold as-is. Artwork condition is Very Good. This is a very impressive piece from this film!
