    Blame It on the Samba (RKO, R-1955). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This bright, colorful poster was inspired by the tale of Donald Duck and Jose Carioca, both depressed and in need of some cheer. They stumble across Cafe do Samba, whose owner does his best to lift the pair's spirits with some samba music. A Walt Disney Production, this was originally released as part of the feature film Melody Time in 1948. This one sheet is from the films official "first release" as a short subject, so-- while technically a reissue and labeled as such, it is really a first release poster. Only pinpoint cross fold separation can be detected. Very Fine-.
