draw the curtain on my career


If Acme's will is not going to show up by midnight, the judge Doom will own Toontown. He:
You see Mr. Valiant? The successful conclusion of this case draws the curtain on my career as a jurist in Toontown. I'm retiring. To take a new role in the private sector.

'Who framed Roger Rabbit', movie

Dictionaries (at least Russian) say that it means "suppress", "keep in silent". But everyone knows that Doom is the judge. Could the bold part have another meaning, like "to finish"?
Thank you

(correction: is NOT going to show)
