    Description

    It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (8) One Inch and (1) Six Inch Miniature Figures Cast in Silicone from Original Molds (United Artists, 1963). Original (9) miniature figures constructed of cast silicone including (8) 1 in. figures and (1) 6 in. stop motion animation figure of Dick Shawn on 4 x 2 in. base. All pieces cast to exacting detail of influential sculptor, model maker and stop-motion animator Marcel Delgado, early innovator of stop motion animation. Delgado worked with the legendary Willis O'Brien on The Lost World, King Kong and many more early landmark FX films. These set pieces are highly visible in the unforgettable, madcap ladder rescue scene in which many of the iconic cast of comedians are thrown, one by one, from the top of an out of control fire ladder. The 8-1" figures are presented in an 8" x 6" x 3" shadowbox frame. In Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
