An original production cel and background from the MGM Studios animated short "Good Will to Men" (1955). Featuring somber imagery of soldiers who have been downed in battle, next to a building that has suffered the same fate, the hand-painted cel and background were created at the studio and used during the animation process. The piece represents an actual frame of animation that was photographed and appears in the short. Measuring 10.5"x16.5" overall, with the main image area measuring about 9"x13.5". Vintage MGM set-ups like this are hard to find and this piece is in excellent condition, with two staples near the lower edge attaching the cels and backgrounds together.
This piece was exhibited at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA for their 2017 exhibit, "Hanna Barbera: The Architects of Saturday Morning."
