Gulliver's Travels (1939)|
Key master set-up of Some Townspeople.
Little Lilliputians push and pull the giant mechanism that is holding the prone Gulliver in place.
The scene appears at 29:34 in the film.
Cel is taped to the background by the upper corners and is slightly wavy which is fairly common for animation cels of this age. There is a tinge of color change in the border of the background and there is some surface paper loss along the extreme lower edge which can be easily matted out. The cel has been stapled to the background by two staples and there is a 0.5" x 0.5" tear in the cel by the staples at the upper left corner and within the border which can be easily matted out. There is a 0.125" x 0.125" area of paper loss to the background with a tear 0.25" in length in the border by the upper left corner. There is very slight paint lifting in the hair of the middle character which is visible upon close inspection. There is evidence of a pin hole to the background 0.25" above the middle peg hole and evidence of staple holes to the background and cel where the border and artwork meet; one at each lower corner and one halfway across the lower edge.
The size of this piece is 12 Field (11"x13") and the size of the image is 6.75" h x 5" w.
