    Description

    A Star is Hatched Emily the Chicken Color Model Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1938). Emily wants desperately to be a movie star, and she's willing to walk 2000 miles from Hickville to Hollywood in order to make it big, in this Friz Freleng-directed Merry Melodies short. In this original 12 field 2-peghole color model drawing, Emily slides into her room to grab her already-packed suitcases after a chance meeting with a big movie producer; that's his card she's holding. You can see this happen online at about the 2:37 mark, although in the film, she no longer is holding the card. Art is in graphite with red, yellow, brown, and a touch of blue penciling. Figure size is about 5.25". Very Good condition with a corner crease in the upper left, and some very minor handling wear.
