Caricature by George Wachsteter (1911-2004) of Alan Young, circa early 1950s, possibly to promote the comedy-variety series, `The Alan Young Show` on CBS-TV (1950-53). His popularity with critics earned him various forms of praise such as `The Charlie Chaplin of Televison` by `TV Guide`, which also earned him and the show two Emmys. Yet his enduring fame would come 7 years later in 1960 as architect Wilbur Post, bewildered owner of `Mister Ed`. On 20" x 15" illustration board. 8" x 6" image. Toned, tape stain above head.
