    Description

    Gang Smashers and Other Lot (Million Dollar Distributing Co., 1938 and 1940). Title Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 13.75 and 11" X 14").
    With her lead role as Chick in director King Vidor's 1929 Hallelujah!, his first sound film and the first all-black film, dancer Nina Mae McKinney got her start in Hollywood in a big way. Soon after, McKinney signed a contract with MGM, but for years she was given only minor parts, including Jean Harlow's dubbed singing voice in Reckless. She tried Europe next and had theatrical success there until the start of WWII, when she returned to Hollywood. McKinney is featured on the title card for Gang Smashers, and also included in this lot is a title card from another thriller with an all black cast, Gang War (Million Dollar, 1940). The Gang Smashers card has been trimmed slightly on the left side and shows surface paper loss and pinholes in the borders, and the Gang War card has very faint stains in the left and top border. Fine/Very Fine.
