The Great Mouse Detective (1986) - (Vincent Price) US one-sheet
This is a 27" x 40" US one-sheet poster for the 1986 Ron Clements, Burny Mattinson, David Michener and John Musker film The Great Mouse Detective based on the Basil of Baker Street series of novels by Eve Titus and starring Vincent Price as the voice of Professor Ratigan. This film was the beginning of a Disney renaissance and includes an early example of the studio's use of CGI animation for a chase scene done inside Big Ben. Plot summary: The main characters in this story are all mice and rats living in Victorian London. In 1897 Olivia Flaversham [Susanne Pollatschek] is a young mouse about to celebrate her birthday with her toymaker father Hiram [Alan Young]. Suddenly Fidget [Candy Candido], a bat with a peg leg, barges in and spirits Hiram away to see Professor Ratigan (a character based on Professor Moriarty from the Sherlock Holmes stories); Ratigan orders Hiram to create a robot who mimics the queen of the mice, which will enable him to rule England. Abandoned, Olivia is suddenly left with the task of locating her father. To do this she enlists the services of the Great Mouse Detective, Basil of Baker Street [Barrie Ingham].
