    Description

    Al Kilgore Gunga Din Illustration Cary Grant, Douglass Fairbanks Jr., and Victor McLaglen Original Art and Reference Photos Group of 3 (c. 1965). A stunning piece of caricature art by Al Kilgore! Produced from a still photo from the 1939 RKO Pictures film Gunga Din, Kilgore took the basic stances and expressions of the actors and crafted a wonderful piece. It may have been intended for Screen Facts, as Kilgore was the Art Director for that fanzine and produced many such gray tone gouache pieces for the publication. As an incredible bonus, not only in the still used to produce this included, there is an actual photo of Al Kilgore himself producing this very piece! How's -that- for provenance? The gouache work is on 10.25" x 11" Bristol board that has been skimmed off the original illustration board he is shown working on. The two photos are 8" x 10". They have handling and wear, with a minor rip on the right of the still. The photos are in Very Good condition and the artwork is in Excellent condition.
