    Bargain with Bullets (Million Dollar Productions, 1937). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    This black gangster melodrama was the first all-black cast film to be exhibited by the powerful Loew's theater chain. Ralph Cooper stars as "Mugsy" Moore, a gangster being tracked down by a police captain played by Sam McDaniel, the brother of famed star Hattie McDaniel. This was the first film to be released by Million Dollar Productions, founded by Cooper, to produce motion pictures for African-American theaters. There has been touchup to the folds, pinholes, misfolds, and to some small tears and chips, as well as a couple of larger chips in the upper border. Unaddressed wear including unobtrusive stains, smudges, and subtle toning in the borders.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
