#DG20 - Sword in The Stone, 'Wart and Arcamedes' (1963). (Original Matte & Art Corner Gold Seal)

Price: $675

#DG20 - Walt Disney 'Sword in The Stone', 1963. This Art Corner cel of 'Wart and Arcamedes' measures 8.00" X 9.50", bearing official Gold Art Corner Seal on rear. To follow the tremendous success of 101 Dalmatians (1961), Walt Disney selected another modem British classic, The Sword in the Stone. He had acquired the rights to T.H. White's novel about the boyhood and education of King Arthur in 1939 (the year after the book's publication). Disney hesitated to develop the film as an animated feature then, feeling that it was not well known enough to warrant it. In the early 1950's, the novel was again considered for production, and when the smash Broadway musical Camelot opened in 1960 (based on White's complete cycle of novels about Arthur, The Once and Future King), Walt began development in earnest.

#DG21 - Sword in The Stone, 'Merlin' (1963). (Original Matte & Art Corner Gold Seal)

#DG21 - Sword in The Stone, 'Merlin' (1963). (Original Matte & Art Corner Gold Seal)

Price: $550

#DG21 - Walt Disney 'Sword in The Stone', 1963. This Art Corner cel of 'Merlin' measures 8.00" X 9.50", bearing official Gold Art Corner Seal on rear. There is some cracking as seen in the scanned photo. However, lines are complete and colors are vivid and bold. Remember this cel was 'HANDPAINTED' not Xeroxed by computer. The visual style of The Sword in the Stone is oddly hybrid, since the new Xerox(tm) technology pioneered in 101 Dalmatians dictated a rugged, graphic style; and the story was a medieval tapestry more in keeping with the visual style of Sleeping Beauty (1959). The Disney artists made up for this conflict in styles with exceptionally well-developed characters in entertaining and imaginative sequences. Many animation experts cite the battle between the wizard Merlin and his rival, Mad Madam Mim, as a highlight of not only the film, but of character animation to that date. The characters of Merlin and Mim go through a dozen transformations of their physical beings during the raucous magic duel, but maintain the definition of their characters throughout the melee.
