    Why Calibrate? Pan Production Cel and Key Master Background (Graphic Films, c. 1950s/60s). "Our naval weapons system are designed to meet the tactical needs of the fleet!" begins this great "Cartoon Modern" styled US Navy Training Film by Lester Novros Graphic Films. This is an incredibly rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel on its Key Master hand-painted pan production background of the "Acme Cannonball Size Guide Department." Lester Novros began his Graphic Film company after he left Walt Disney studios and began doing training films during World War II. Cel and background are 26" x 11". This training film is currently on YouTube. It ends with "Sea Power for Security!" Minor handling and edge wear. Tape along bottom border. Good overall condition.
