Dames (Warner Bros. - First National, 1934). Folded, Fine+. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 76.5") Tito Corbella Artwork. Certainly a rarity, this is the first time we at Heritage have ever seen this poster up for auction anywhere! The great Busby Berkeley directs and choreographs this cinematic jewel, which once again features the dynamic musical team of Harry Warren and Al Dubin. The classic tunes for this film include one of their greatest - "I Only Have Eyes for You." With Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, and Joan Blondell (all co-stars from Berkeley's earlier productions of 42nd Street, Gold Diggers of 1933, and Footlight Parade), the magic keeps on coming and the dance numbers are over-the-top fantasy spectacles. The supporting cast of Zasu Pitts, Guy Kibbee, and Hugh Herbert provide the comedic elements. This stone litho Italian poster features artwork by Tito Corbella and has mild edge wear, slight fold wear and separation, creasing, and pinholes. Also present are small tears and chips, foxing, and ink stamp bleedthrough. There is also a tear into the background of the lower left corner and the poster has strips of masking tape on the verso with tape stain bleedthrough. The top and bottom panels have been attached with adhesive on the verso.
