    The Shooting of Dan McGoo Red Hot as Lou Production Cel (MGM, 1945). "Put your arms around me, Wolfy, hold me tight!" Malamute Saloon is the favored locale for roughhousing, violent Gold Rushers, but the gunfights and drinking are soon stopped in their tracks by the arrival of the alluring Red Hot on stage. Red Hot turns heads as she sings her own rendition of a Judy Garland song in the 1945 MGM short The Shooting of Dan McGoo. As always, the Wolf is enraptured by the performance, and he instantly falls for the gorgeous performer. This short parodies Robert W. Service's narrative poem "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" with McGrew's sweetheart Lou being played by none other than fan-favorite Red Hot, originally seen in Red Hot Riding Hood two years earlier. Lou's singing voice is provided by jazz and pop singer Imogene Lynn in this cartoon. This is a piece to marvel at! This jaw-dropping original, hand-painted, hand-inked production cel depicts the stunning Red Hot in a huge image measuring about 7.75" x 8.25". This fantastic pose can be found at about the 6:22 mark of the Tex Avery-directed short. The 12 field production cel is numbered in its lower right corner with 214, and it is displayed atop a color print background from the scene. The piece is matted, with a matboard aperture of 12" x 10" and an overall mat size of 16.75" x 15". The spectacular cel is in Very Good condition, with a few dents and a small tear on the upper right corner of the cel (far away from the image), minor scuffing on the right edge, and minor handling and edge wear.
