DescriptionMoth and the Flame Lady Moth Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1938).
A throng of voracious moths infest Ye Olde Costume Shop in Walt Disney's Moth and the Flame. When a beautiful young girl moth is seduced by a hypnotic candle flame, her young boyfriend moth ignores her while he devours a bolo hat. He soon notices her trapped in a spider web with the fire attacking her. He makes several attempts to save her, ultimately he is successful. Moth and the Flame is a Silly Symphony short that debuted on 4/1/38. This is a beautiful classic Silly Symphony cartoon that's almost forgotten. From this artfully crafted short we have a superb vintage drawing of the lady moth. The piece was rendered in graphite with green pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The image measures 4.75" and can be seen around the 2:48 mark. Very Good condition.
