    Terror on the Midway Superman Painted Production Background (Max Fleischer, 1942). Stunning hand-painted trimmed production background from Terror on the Midway, the ninth of the seventeen 1940s Superman Technicolor cartoons. It was released on 8/23/42, directed by Dave Fleischer and produced by Max Fleischer. This was the final Superman cartoon made by Fleischer, before Famous Studios took over the company. You can see this background at about the 1:41 mark, right before we see Lois Lane taking a photograph at the circus with Clark Kent. The background is trimmed to 12" x 10.5". Any and ALL artwork from Fleischer Superman cartoons is considered extremely rare and coveted by collectors. Fine condition.
