Lot Details
A group of Harper Goff drawings of the S.S. Wonkatania for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
A group of Harper Goff drawings of the S.S. Wonkatania for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Paramount, 1971. 1 original drawing, 1 Ozalid, 1 period reproduction, and 1 reverse Photostat: Black marker on tracing paper, captioned "Wonka's Boat 1: 33 1/3" in black marker; Ozalid, captioned "The Hard Candy Boat," annotated with notes and additions in black and red marker, text in English and German; a period reproduction of a drawing titled "The Hard Candy Boat" and an identical reverse Photostat of that same drawing. This lot documents Goff's development of Willy Wonka's ship, alternately known as "The Hard Candy Boat," "The S.S. Wonkatania," or simply "Wonka's Boat." Willy Wonka director Mel Stuart wrote in his book Willy Wonka, Pure Imagination that it "was originally conceived as a sixteenth-century three-masted sailboat. However, we couldn't fit a vessel that huge on the stage." In the drawings in this lot, the boat is depicted primarily with sails and oars. Since the film was shot in Munich, the text on the "Hard Candy Boat" Ozalid is partly in German.
12 x 16 in. to 21.75 x 34.25 in.
