    Description

    Moth and The Flame Animation Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1938). The concept artwork for this short, about a pack of moths that invade "Ye Olde Costume Shop," was done by Gustav Tenngren. The attractive lady moth is beguiled by the flame that occasionally morphs into Clark Gable. This is an outstanding group of three 12 field, 5-peghole animation drawings of the title characters from this Burt Gillett-directed Silly Symphony. The first is a full body image of the moth measuring 4.5" x 2" in graphite with green and red highlights, and numbered 47 in the lower right corner. She can be seen around the 2:49 mark. The other two very colorful drawings are of the flame rendered in graphite orange, green, and yellow pencil. Both images are seconds apart around the 2:45 mark and measure approximately 5.5" tall. One features the flame as itself and the other as Clark Gable. They are numbered 167 and 170A respectively. All show minor handling and edgewear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
