Lost and Found

Saturday Advertising Day.

I have seen this late film ad many times, but always in black and white and usually in a microcrofiche version. This made that I could never figure out who drew it. I was secretly hoping to find it was by Alex Toth, who had also done the Dell comic book adatation of the same movie. Recently I came across a color version and I am sad to say it wss not by Alex Toth. In fact, I don't think it was by any familiar comic book artist but rather by some advertising guy. Anyway, it is noce to share in coor, one of the last comic book style movie ads to be done for the newspapers.
