    The Bodyguard (MGM, R-1951). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In the fifteenth Tom and Jerry short directed by icons William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and animated by Pete Burness, Kenneth Muse, Ray Patterson and Irven Spence, Jerry rescues Spike the dog (in only his second appearance in the series) from the city dog catcher. The brutish bulldog offers his services as bodyguard for the the little mouse, telling him "Thanks, chum. I'm your pal for life! Anytime you ever needs me, just whistle." With safety just a whistle away when Tom is on the prowl, Jerry feels safe at last. The plan works wonderfully, with Spike finding all sorts of clever ways (which make for great sight gags) to clobber Tom. Things go awry however, when Tom gives Jerry a jawbreaker covered in glue, making it impossible for Jerry to pucker up. It's all downhill from there for Jerry and his new pal Spike! This incredibly fun, colorful reissue poster is in great condition, only showing light fold wear, pinholes in the borders and image area, and very light creases and wrinkles at the bottom of the image area. Very Fine.
