M . P. A . S. Beetlejuice is a comedy-fantasy film from 1988. It revolves around a recently deceased couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) that tries to haunt the new buyers out of their house. The couple does not have much success so they hire a sleazy ghost to get rid of the family. That obnoxious and devious ghost is Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton). This top image depicts a truck that Beetlejuice crashes when he is in a miniature model of the town that the husband was working on before and after he died. The graphite drawing was done by Illustrator Jack Johnson. Bo Welch was the Production Designer for the film. The photograph from the film shows the miniature town with the husband (Alec Baldwin) hard at work. The story of Beetlejuice is being revived for the stage. There is a musical version that is scheduled to make its world premiere in Washington, D.C., in late 2018 and will arrive on Broadway in spring 2019.
