LIFE BEGINS FOR ANDY HARDY (1941) Advertising pull-out by Jacques Kapralik


[Hollywood] MGM, 1941. Vintage original 9 x 12″ (22 x 30 cm.) advertising pull-out on cardstock paper. Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, dir: George B. Seitz, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Ad for film on verso, fine.

For the industry publication The Lion’s Roar, caricature artist supreme Jacques Kapralik created this art (originally in three dimensions using elements of yarn, fabric, paper, buttons, sequins and miniature creations) to highlight the themes and elements found in the film’s story.

Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are featured in a New York City setting when Betsy Booth (Garland), daughter to a Broadway actress, shows “Smalltown, USA” Andy Hardy (Rooney) the ropes of making it in the big city. Garland and Rooney would make solo and Andy Hardy films between the big scale musicals.
