"Mother Goose Goes Hollywood" (1936) - Marx Brothers Pencils

I picked up this great image of Grocho and then the pencil of the other two Marx Brothers. Each of the images seemed to fit my criteria of being very representative of their personalities. The images were in odd places on the paper and I wanted to avoid trimming. I thought it would be a good idea to frame them together, but I couldn't get the pages to look acceptable when overlapped. Jenny and I decided to have the framer cut the matte to show a movie camera and used the light pools from the spotlights to hide the page seams.
