Original Illustration Created By MGM Studios: Get Well Greeting for "Starlet". Ribald illustration from a division of MGM. We have very little information on this very colorful original work because it could be either related to the studio, film or televison Illustration is signed on chart hanging from bed (Fred Tuch) and given the design, we think its likely from the 1960s. Further there was a production designer and story board artist of that name. Again trying to piece together what is available. Nevertheless it is a bawdy, hilarious and very well executed illustration of thee men delivering a bountiful tray of food and drink to a saucy young woman clearly showing improvement in her health! The illustration is lettered in press-type "From All the Rat Pack at M-G-M. On panel in pen and watercolor 16 x 12", framed by a gallery in on Ventura Blvd in Tarzana, and in excellent condition. Estimate Value $150 - UP
