The theatrical character drawings of American original Al Hirschfeld have been delighting readers of The New York Times for 70-some years. With a technique honed on Paramount film posters, his evocations always hit the mark. In this poster featuring the cover art for a book of "verbal and visual gems from the short films of W. C. Fields," Hirschfeld illustrates a snippet of dialogue from the tippling comic's The Barbershop (1933). Fans of the illustrator know that shortly after his daughter Nina was born in 1944, he began hiding her name throughout his works; this is a three-Nina job.
