MPP ART 4 SALE! During World War 2 Dr Seuss worked under (Colonel) Frank Capra making instructional & propagandistic animated & live-action shorts! Although his work’s been adapted often since, 5000 Fingers was the last Hollywood project Suess had a personal hand in, which he described of as the worst experience of his life! It’s achieved cult status over the years but Fingers was a flop when it first came out & during filming apparently one of the boys threw up on the giant prop piano causing a domino effect! Suess said the film’s reviews were similar! The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2006 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Caligari for Kids!” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks. More deets below or contact me for info. (To see image full-sized, click on it to open in a new window & use the magnify function).
