Original production cel Classic animation is the art of bringing to life single drawings to create the illusion of character drama and movement. The original animator's drawing is transferred onto an acetate cel (either by hand-inking or photocopying). The cel is then flipped over and individually hand-painted on the reverse side. Thousands of animation cels are required to create just a few minutes of film. Most are destroyed or damaged as a result of their use but some make it to collectors intact. Each cel is truly unique.
In this cel, Two Face begins an aggressive campaign against his hated rival, Rupert Thorne, who puts out a two-million dollar contract on him. Since Two-Face used to be Harvey Dent, Bruce Wayne's best friend, Batman wants to find him before Thorne does. Thorne's people snare Two-Face first by using his former fiancee, Grace, as bait. Just as Thorne is about to rub him out, Batman intervenes, allowing Two-Face to get the drop on Thorne. When Two-Face flips his coin to decide how he's going to get rid of Thorne, Batman tips over a box of silver dollars, burying the coin and throwing Two-Face into a frenzy of uncertainty - he can't make up his mind without his precious coin. Thus subdued, Two-Face is accompanied to the prison hospital by Grace, who hopes to help him recover from his tormented mental state.
