Frank Frazetta Playboy Magazine "Li'l Abner's Ga
Frank Frazetta Playboy Magazine "Li'l Abner's Gals" Pictorial Appassionata von Climax Illustration Original Art (Playboy Enterprises, 1957). Two of the most eye-catching features of the Li'l Abner Broadway show were the shapely forms of Julie Newmar and Tina Louise, who both made their Broadway debuts with this show. The two ran away with the proceedings, at least in the hearts of many red-blooded American males. It was her awesome presence as Appasionata Von Climax that launched Tina Louise into film and TV stardom. This comely cartoon by Frank Frazetta appeared in the May 1957 issue of Playboy, in a photo pictorial feature, "Li'l Abner's Gals," subtitled, "They're Broadway's Most Beautiful and the Most Fun, Too," by Al Capp. The image area of this "good girl" delight measures 6.5" X 11.5", and the piece has been matted to an overall size of 11.5" x 16.5". The art is in Excellent condition, and a copy of the Playboy is included with this lot.
