    Walt Disney Studios -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Courvoisier Background. (1937). To begin the transformation to the old hag, the Wicked Queen consults her book of spells! This magnificent set up includes the book and Queen on cel, the bookstand hand painted on an overlay, and the stone walls of her dungeon on the background. A very fine pose from an exceptionally rare sequence. This part of the film was so frightening to 1930s children that New York City's Radio City Music Hall had to replace all 6000 seat cushions in the auditorium after the film completed its run. So many children "lost control" that the velvet seat material was ruined! The Queen is 4.75" x 9.0" and the background shown is 11.0" x 10.5." This original set up captures the beauty and cruelty of the Queen in a most impressive scene. Excellent condition from a scene rarely found. Here's your chance to own a real villainess!
