#MGM14 – TOM FROM ‘TEXAS TOM’, 1950. This classic vintage cel is trimmed to 10′, dated by artist JAN. 1950 on top of cel. The background bears stamp ‘Hand-painted presentation background’, triple matted measuring 14-3/4″ X 16-1/4″, image size measures 9-3/4″ X 8-1/4″. Tom is a cowboy and is practicing his lasso on Jerry, who is pulled over spurs and cactus. A lovely lady cat gets off the stage and Thomas goes to work. He ambles over to her, tips his hat, rolls a cigarette (with Jerry forced to do the licking) and starts playing the guitar. Jerry must start the record player as Tom’s slave. Jerry’s revenge is turning the record player to fast, then slow speeds and then poking Tom with a hot branding iron. Tom tries to lasso Jerry but instead hooks a BIG BULL. The rest is Tom trying to escape from this bull, giving up, and putting a blindfold on and smoking his last cigarette before his destruction. (MATTED)
