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")

This lot comes from the personal collection of celebrated film producer Robert Watts. Watts’ career began in the 1960s with location manager, production manager and assistant director credits on movies including Thunderball, Repulsion, Darling, Papillon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars: A New Hope and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Robert went on to become producer of such classics as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It’s fair to say his CV includes some of the most popular movies of all time.
Robert and his family are parting ways with these important artefacts so that they may find new custodians to cherish and appreciate them for years to come.
