DescriptionA Star is Hatched Charlie Chaplin Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1938). A Star is Born has been made as a major live-action film four times (beginning with Janet Gaynor in 1937, with later versions starring Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, and Lady Gaga). There was also this clever cartoon takeoff of the first version, directed by Friz Freleng. It features film star wannabe Emily the Chicken plus a slew of great Old Hollywood caricatures. Here is a very rare 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of "The Little Tramp," Charlie Chaplin, as seen in online viewings at the 5:32 mark. The art is in graphite with red and green pencil highlights, and a figure size of 5.25"; the sequence number in the lower right corner is 35-C. There is a horizontal fold crease that runs along the top edge of the paper, but is nowhere near the image. Very Good condition.
