A Bulldog Cafe art department model set from the production of Joe Johnston's action adventure film The Rocketeer. Pilot Cliff Secord (Bill Campbell) ate at the Bulldog Cafe throughout the film, including when Jenny (Jennifer Connelly) learned his flight suit had major issues.
This set consists of an art department model of the cafe with a wood head and base, metal wire for structure, mesh applied to the back and a layer of plaster applied. This model was used in planning the construction of the full-size cafÃ© set and is made in the shape of the bulldog, with its distinct ears. Also included is a Bulldog Cafe dinner menu prop printed in blue, burgundy, and black on eggshell cardstock and a copy of Topps' The Rocketeer Official Movie Souvenir Magazine that features a photo of this exact set construction model on page 28. The model is in good overall condition with some plaster residue on the mesh from production and scuffing to the wood throughout. Dimensions: (largest) 13" x 13" x 13" (33 cm x 33 cm x 33 cm); (smallest) 13" x 7" (33 cm x 18 cm)
Estimate: $2,000 - 3,000
