    A Star is Hatched Emily the Chicken Animation 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 animation drawing, Emily rushes to grab her already-packed suitcases after meeting a big producer who happened to be passing through. You can see this online very briefly at around the 2:36 mark. Art is in graphite with red, blue, and green pencil highlights, and a figure size of 4.5". The drawing is noted as number 11 in the lower right corner. A faint horizontal paper crease runs through the center, very lightly affecting the image, but overall condition is Very Good.
