    Description

    A Bruce Willis Owned One Sheet Poster from "Cruise Cat." MGM, 1952. Linen-backed, signs of restoration and touchups to "Tom" lettering and fold-wear, bleed-through from a stamp on the back, all borders trimmed; one of the most successful comedy teams in film history, Tom and Jerry were created by famed animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in 1940 for the short Puss Gets the Boot. The short was a hit, receiving an Academy Award Nomination for Best Short Subject: Cartoons in 1941, and Hanna and Barbera were tasked with creating more adventures of the cat and mouse duo. The rest, as they say, is history. In this hysterical short, Tom is the official cat on a cruise ship, threatened with expulsion if the captain finds even one mouse. Of course that mouse is Jerry. A "Letter of Authenticity" signed by Bruce Willis will accompany this lot. From the Collection of Bruce Willis.
    25" x 39"
