    The Nightmare Before Christmas screen-used cemetery set piece. The Nightmare Before Christmas screen-used cemetery set piece. (Touchstone, 1993)  The magic of Tim Burton's classic The Nightmare Before Christmas is in large part based on the imaginative and whimsical design of the fantastic visual world he created. In Halloween Town, where we first meet "Jack Skellington", "Sally" and all the major misfit players in the story, the cemetery is a landmark sprawling at the foot of the iconic spiral hill adjacent to the pumpkin patch. The spiral hill imagery was used in posters and countless other promotional materials. This is a segment of the actual miniature cemetery set piece used in the film. Crafted of wood substructure, carved styrofoam and polyfoam with a grooved and textured composite finish. Painted to detail in monochromatic blacks and grays, this set piece measures a full 5 ft. long x 4.5 ft. wide x 2.5 ft. tall. Design features resin rock wall, wooden crosses, resin gravestones in various scales to create a warped, forced perspective. Minor production wear and chipping along the edges, but in very good overall condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
