Product Description

A stunning looking original production cell image from Disney’s classic film ‘one Hundred and One Dalmatians’, featuring the all-time villainess Cruella de Vil blowing a green cloud of smoke.

The image of Cruella is on one cellulose acetate sheet (called cel), with the green dispersing cloud of smoke in the other. They superimpose to produce the full picture. The sheets have the film production reference numbers on the edges. The image is quite large and would be photographed in order to make the film reel image. The technique, where the characters are drawn on cels and laid over a static background drawing, reduces the number of times an image has to be redrawn and enables studios to split up the production process to different specialised teams. Using this assembly line way to animate has made it possible to produce films much more cost-effectively. Iconic images from famous films are very sought after and command high prices.

‘One Hundred and One Dalmatians’, is a 1961 American animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney and based on the 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. The 17th Disney animated feature film, the film tells the story of a litter of dalmatian puppies who are kidnapped by the villainous Cruella de Vil (Betty Lou Gerson), who wants to use their fur to make into coats. Their parents, Pongo and Perdita, (Rod Taylor and Cate Bauer, respectively) set out to save their children from Cruella, all the while rescuing 84 additional puppies that were bought in pet shops, bringing the total of dalmatians to 101.

Originally released to theatres in January 1961, by Buena Vista Distribution, ‘One Hundred and One Dalmatians’ was a box office success, pulling the studio out of the financial slump caused by Sleeping Beauty.

The cel has been mounted, framed and glazed. However, for the purposes of the description we are showing photographs both unframed and framed. Condition is very good.
