Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Lot # 570 - Live Auction 2017 - Los Angeles Chronicle "Toon Kills Man" Newspaper

Stock #71830

A Los Angeles Chronicle newspaper from Robert Zemeckis' Oscar®-winning detective comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Pivotal to the film's plot, newspapers were used by Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) to uncover the truth about Marvin Acme's (Stubby Kaye) will.

Printed on newspaper stock, the paper consists of a printed front-and-back cover page dated 'Friday Morning, August 15, 1947'. It features the headlines 'Toon Kills Man' and 'Marvin Acme Murdered at the Hands of Jealous Rabbit' followed by Valiant's photograph of Acme and Jessica Rabbit. The photograph displays early concept art used for Jessica. The newspaper also shows a picture of Roger Rabbit, and an article suggesting Valiant fanned the flame of Roger's jealousy. The piece remains fragile from production use and age, with paper yellowing, edge tears and creases. Dimensions (unfolded): 55 cm x 41 cm (21 3/4" x 16")
