    Description

    42nd Street (Warner Brothers, 1933). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Musical.
    The on-screen musical hit depression era audiences like a thunderbolt when 42nd Street opened in 1933. While the story was rather predictable, it was also very satisfying as Peggy Sawyer (Ruby Keeler) a stand-in with no real hope for her future, is called upon to "save the show!" It was something the masses of unemployed workers could only dream of happening to them as well. But what really jolted the public were the incredibly choreographed dance numbers by Busby Berkeley. This is a beautiful portrait card featuring Keeler, George Brent and Bebe Daniels. Professionally cleaned and restored, it once showed staple holes and staining. Both the bottom border and verso have been airbrushed, and the card still displays slight surface rippling. Fine+.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
