    War and Pieces Layout Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1964). Impressive original 12 field layout drawing of Wile E. Coyote (Caninus Nervous Rex). This layout drawing is from the last theatrical cartoon directed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) before he left Warner Brothers for MGM. The short was co-directed by Maurice Noble. It is taken from the scene in which Wile E. straps himself to an Acme Rocket and heads up the mountain after the Road Runner, only to have the rocket loop backward and tunnel straight through to China! It can be seen near the 5:25 mark in the short. The impressive layout is attributed to Maurice Noble. It is marked "Sc42 (Sc's 42, 44, 47 and 53 @180 degrees)." The layout is hand-signed by Chuck Jones! Graphite with multi-colored highlights. Beautiful Maurice Noble original. Matted with an opening size of 11" x 10". Graphite with red, yellow, brown, and blue highlights. In Good condition.
