Large c. 1968-1970 photograph of Johnny Carson on set during a filming of the famous "Tonight Show" and capturing Carson in costume during one of his comedy skits. A double weight beauty that grades a perfect 10/10 and is one of the few images of Carson on set we have seen where he was not conducting an interview. Photo was taken by famous photographer Oscar Abolafia (who was the official photographer of the Tonight Show at this time) and comes from his estate. Offered here for the first time ever, this is a double weight masterpiece of photography that is from one of the best to do it during the 1960's-1970's. Abolafia was published in countless magazines and had shows of his works throughout the World!
