    Swing Shift Cinderella Red Hot Animation Drawings by Preston Blair Sequence of 5 (MGM, 1945). Red Hot returns in this riotous cartoon, this time in a wild take on the classic fairy tale "Cinderella." Here's a rare set of original 12 field 3-peghole rough animation drawings from the hand of Red's main animator, the legendary Preston Blair (1908 - 1995). In this short, the Wolf gives up chasing an obnoxious Red Riding Hood (when he discovers he's in the wrong cartoon), and does his best to avoid Cindie's amorous Fairy Godmother to make time with this little red-haired cutie. In this fantastic sequence which begins at the short's 5:20 mark, Red is singing "Oh Wolfie" with the line "You send those shivers up my spine" as she crouches low. The sequence has Red slowly stand upright, with the drawings numbered in the lower right corners as 822, 826, 828, 862 (with a small timing chart in the lower right), and 856. Her figure sizes begin at 4.75" crouching, and up to 8.25" standing in the last drawing, which is seen at the 3:54 mark (last two drawings are both in standing positions). Art is in graphite with light brown pencil underdrawings. You'll want to do a few wolf whistles yourself when you see these! This animation was so good, it was used again in the 1949 short Little Rural Riding Hood! Condition is Very Good to Fine, with very minor paper toning and handling wear, plus a small edge stain well away from the image on drawing 862.
