Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Lot # 885 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Robert Watts Collection: Hand-Painted Roger and Jessica Rabbit Film Cel

Stock #106463

An original, hand-painted film cel from Robert Zemeckis' detective comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This item comes from the personal collection of legendary producer Robert Watts. This cel depicts a scene in the film where Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) has tied up Roger and Jessica Rabbit on a hook, and is about to drop them into his toxic "dip" made of turpentine, acetone, and benzene - fatal to Toons.

The image has a stamp in white ink, which certifies that this is a "Walt Disney original hand-painted movie film cel". The cel is secured on a white cardboard mount and shows a few signs of age and storage. There are marks on the cardboard, dents on the protective plastic sheet, and the adhesive holding the cardboard mount has dried out, causing the mount to come away in places. However, the cel remains in good condition. Dimensions: 51 cm x 39.5 cm (20" x 15 1/2")
