Description

    Nifty Nineties Theater Front Production Background (Walt Disney, 1941). This theatrical short starring Mickey and Minnie Mouse was directed by Riley Thompson, with principal animation by Ward Kimball, Fred Moore, Walt Kelly, and Les Clark. The cartoon is considered one of Mickey Mouse's "Greatest Hits" and is notable for the use of caricatures of Moore and Kimball as vaudeville performers. This is an original hand-painted production background illustration of the theater Mickey and Minnie enter. The blank marquee and front sign would have had cel overlays; the sign noted the appearances of "Fred and Ward" while the marquee advertised "Now Showing -- Vaudeville." It's a beautiful gouache painting with exceptional detail, featuring an approximate image area of 12" x 15". The reverse side has a Walt Disney Productions stamp, and is noted "Prod. 22258, Sc. 9," with an "OK" signature by Riley Thompson and inker-dated 3-14-41. Fine condition.
