    Description

    The Peanut Man (Consolidated, 1947). One Sheet (28" X 42"). Black Films.
    More than likely this one is missing from your Black Film Collection. It's a quite scarce, high grade one sheet from a film about George Washington Carver that got made against all odds. In 1947 an actor named Tony Paton who had labored for years in small parts in everything from Jezebel to Reap the Wild Wind, was on an airplane and saw Clarence Muse sitting in the front of the plane. They were flying from New Orleans to Los Angeles, but according to the "rules of the day," Paton couldn't sit beside Muse until they had passed Dallas heading westward! Once past Dallas, they sat together all the way to LA and Paton pitched Muse with his idea about a biography on Carver. The opening scene of the film is a fascinating look into how Hollywood really works. Paton (playing himself) is pitching a money-man named "Murphy" (Bernard Gorcey) into backing the film. It's tough going. This unique one sheet features seven scenes from the film. Starring Clarence Muse, Ernest Anderson, Hall Johnson Choir, Bernard Gorcey, Maidie Norman. Directed by Tony Paton. Unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as very slight fold separation and fold wear, and minor creases and crinkles. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Folded, Very Fine-.
