Caricature by George Wachsteter (1911-2004) for 1962-63 NBC-TV`s Modern-Day One Hour Western Series `Empire`, starring Richard Egan as Jim Redigo, general manager of the 500,000-acre Garrett Ranch in New Mexico. A precursor to `Dallas`, the series debuted Sept 25, 1962 but underwent several changes to maintain its various storylines and characters. For its 2nd season, the series was renamed `Redigo` and shortened to a half-hour, which made it difficult to develop complex, in-depth characters, and it was cancelled Dec 31, 1963. Appeared as cover of Aug 11, 1963 New York Journal-American Pictorial Magazine and TView Section, includes original copies. On 14" x 22" illustration board. 14" x 9 1/2" image. Edge toned.
