    Chu Chin Chow (Gaumont, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This British musical comedy is loosely based on the story of "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves," and was first introduced as a London stage production, written, directed, and starring Oscar Asche. It was extremely popular with critics and audiences alike and the play ran for five years, 1916-21, a record at the time. It was then filmed in 1923, and again in 1934, this time with Anna May Wong as Zahrat Al-Kulub, Fritz Kortner as the robber captain Abu Hahan, and George Robey as Ali Baba. Part of its immense appeal was no doubt due to the exotic but scant costumes of the many dancing slave girls. This very rare poster has pinholes in the borders, crossfold separations, light fold wear, a chip in the bottom right, and a small stain in two borders. With its spectacular stone litho artwork, this poster is sure to be a hit with collectors. Fine+.

    Estimate: $1,500 - up.
