    Description

    The Jail Break Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1946). Infamous Bay Area prison Alcatraz is featured in this set of two original hand-painted production background paintings. This was a Mighty Mouse short, directed by Eddie Donnelly, and released on 9/20/46. The first background shows the prison walls and the bay; this is when Bad Bill Bunion's horse swims to the island and kicks a bag filled with guns up to Bill's cell. It can be seen at the 1:13 mark, and is numbered 7 in the upper right corner. The second piece is numbered 13, with another view of the prison walls; in the short, a searchlight is used to locate the now-escaped prisoner. It is found at the 1:52 mark. Both are painted in gouache on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board. Very Good with minor handling and edge wear.
