Cockeyed Cavaliers (RKO, 1934). Folded, Very Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection. Considered by many to the best of the Wheeler and Woolsey comedies of the 1930s, Cockeyed Cavaliers was certainly one of the most lavishly produced. The posters produced for it were also outstanding. Set in "Ye Olden England" the plot has Bert and Bob posing as royal physicians to escape the constables. They team up with Dorothy Lee, who is disguised as a boy to escape an arranged marriage. Add the lovely Thelma Todd and plenty of "double-entendre" comedy insues. This poster shows only a few minute tears, pinholes, and pinpoint crossfold separation.
