    Tom and Jerry in The Milky Waif (MGM, 1946). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    Producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera enjoyed tremendous success among younger audiences with their creation of Tom and Jerry, the mischievous mouse and perpetually harried cat. Introducing the character of Nibbles for this first time, this manic installation of MGM's literal cat-and-mouse series has Jerry saving his new charge from Tom during their multiple attempts to steal some of Tom's milk. Prior to professional restoration, this Heritage first once showed slight fold wear and separation, pinholes, and small tears. There were a few minor chips in the edges and vertical folds, as well as some mild paper loss in the top right corner. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
