    Description

    Swing Shift Cinderella Red Hot Animation Drawings Sequence of 5 (MGM, 1945). "Oh Wolfie, oh Wolfie, ain't you the one!" sings that "little fairy tale fireball" Red Hot as Cinderella, in this insanely funny short directed by Tex Avery, released to theaters on 8/25/45. Here's an original set of sequenced 12 field 3-peghole animation roughs of Red from the hand of Preston Blair, the man who created this little dancing whirlwind without the help of Rotoscoping or using live models. Naturally, this process took double the time to animate, but Avery gave Blair full rein, knowing the results would be worth it -- and boy, was he right! These are large images of Red, drawn somewhat loosely in graphite and brown pencil; sizes are 8.5" to 9". This is the sequence where Red sings the "oh Wolfie" line, and turns to raise her cute little derriere, a particular favorite with most fans. You can see this in the finished short online, beginning at the 5:13 mark. The art is numbered 658, 660, 668, 674, and 682 in the lower right. There are added notes and timing charts on two of the drawings. Overall condition is Very Good, with minor handling and light paper toning.
