A searingly seductively blonde takes the stand in this hard boiled, pulp fiction inspired 1949 pin-up by Al Buell. Working for the Louis F. Dow calendar company under the pseudonym Al Leslie (Leslie was the artist's middle name), Buell created this leggy, impish bad girl, a scandalous vixen reminiscent of the defiant film noir heroines who graced the screen in this post-war period.

This fresh to the market original painting was used as a calendar image and for a mutoscope card with the titles of "Hung Jury" and "Case Dis-missed". A printed calendar is included with sale, and this comes framed in a handsome gallery frame, ready to hang in your home or even law office.
