    Description

    Uncle Tom's Cabana (MGM, 1947). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    An infamous parody of Harriet Beecher Stowe's famous novel, this Tex Avery short is one of several cartoons banned from television airings in the 1960s for its rampant use of racial stereotypes. Avery's cheesecake character, the risqué Red, takes the place of the pure and innocent Eva, making this a completely outrageous cartoon by modern standards. Now only found on The Compleat Tex Avery laserdiscs released by MGM in 1993, this notorious bit of animation is almost as difficult to find as this exceptionally scarce poster. There has been touchup to the folds, pinholes in the background, and a tear through the upper left piano and Red's torso. Definitely an item that's hard to come by, this is a rare chance for animation fans to add a bit of scandalous history to their collections. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
