Tom & Jerry vs.Cinemascope

When the studios of M.G.M. and Hannah Barbera were faced with that dreaded t.v. in the 50's, The decision to make cartoons in the new Cinemascope process, caused the publicity department to dream up this great Tom & Jerry one sheet. Un-like most of the cartoon one sheets put out by the M.G.M. art department, this poster has characters that really look like themselves! You should see what passed for acceptable on some of these.
