||Fine on linen
|Notes: Only the tenth Tom and Jerry cartoon, The Lonesome Mouse is significant as the very first time the two characters speak, something that happened in only a handful of the MGM installments. After some commotion, Mammy Two Shoes puts Tom out of the house. Jerry lives it up for a while (even altering the picture on Tom's water bowl to look like Hitler), but soon gets bored, and eventually the two are reunited, and waging an all-out war against each other. Directed by an uncredited Joe Barbera and William Hanna, this is one of the best early Tom & Jerry cartoons. This poster is from the 1949 re-release of this 1943 short film and features fabulous artwork produced using stone litho rather than offset litho printing which gives far more vivid colours. Linen backed in exceptional condition.
