Q: I have what looks like an original watercolor painting. It is from a made-for-TV movie Disney made about 1977 called Harness Fever, I think. In the bottom-right-hand corner of the painting is written in pencil “Harness Fever” and “Prod. 3752.” Do you know who would have been the artist, or anything else about it?

A: This film was also known as Born to Run, which was its TV title in the U.S. when it aired in 1979. It had been released theatrically in Australia and the U.K. as Harness Fever in 1977. We do not know who would have painted your artwork, but the film was produced in Australia, with David Copping credited as its art director.
