    Yellow Submarine "Sea of Science" Beatles Production Cel Group (United Artists/King Features, 1968). One of the most famous scenes in the movie Yellow Submarine is the psychedelic "Sea of Science" scene in which George Harrison's "Only a Northern Song" is played. The song was recorded during the Sgt. Pepper sessions but used on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack. The images from that scene are iconic, and this lot is a piece of history. Included are three hand-cut cels of George, Ringo, and Paul trimmed to approximately 3" x 3" and taped to a clear cel. A hand-painted production cel of the pointing finger cube, with John on the side, is on a completely different trimmed cel. John's cube is 4" x 4". These are some of only a few cels we have seen from the "Sea of Science" segment. The notation "#6" is written on the bottom right corner of the John and Finger cube. Slight paint loss above the finger in the John cube. In Good condition.
