    Description

    Golden Eggs (RKO, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    One of the best Donald Duck shorts of the 1940s, due to great animation and some superb writing by Carl Barks, the most widely read comic book artist of all time. It was Barks that expanded Donald's character to encompass every human emotion possible. This fun poster has Donald sneaking into the hen house to steal eggs due to the prices going up because of the war. He's ridiculously costumed with a glove on his head, a feather duster for chicken tail plumage, and a dowdy chicken suit with patches. But it initially fools the Rooster on duty, who falls for this exotic new "hen." One of the best parts of the cartoon was the brilliance of Clarence "Ducky" Nash being able to actually "chicken cluck" in Donald's voice! There were few original issues, and this one has only slight foldwear and some small chips in the top horizontal fold and in the top border. Top linenbacking and minimal touch-up has this one looking egg-ceptional. This poster comes within a beautiful frame and museum mounting. Very Fine on Linen.
