ABOUT THE IMAGE: A “Hollywood” wolf, a sultry seductress, and the venerable Bogey – what a perfect combination for a movie. And what a movie it is! “Bacall to Arms,” directed by Bob Clampett in 1946, is a classic interpretation of fan-based infatuation. The cartoon spoofs “To Have and Have Not,” with Clampett’s own “To Have… To Have… To Have….” Each cel in the edition is numbered and hand-signed by Lauren Bacall.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Bob Clampett was an American animator, director, producer and puppeteer known for his work on the Looney Tunes animated series from Warner Brothers.
