    Description

    Beale Street Mama (Sack Amusement Enterprises, 1947). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Directed by Spencer Williams of Amos and Andy television fame (1951-1955), this "race" film stars July Jones, Spencer Williams, and Rosalie Larrimore. Named for the historic street in downtown Memphis, this is one of the more than 500 films produced between 1915 and the early 1950s made for all-black audiences with an all-black cast. A very rare item is being sold for the first time at Heritage. The poster has undergone conservation for chips and tears in the borders and folds, a gouge in the "S" of "Street," and a tear from the upper border through Rosalie Larrimore's image. Very Good/Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
