DescriptionBroadway Melody of 1940 (MGM, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C, Ted "Vincentini" Ireland Artwork.
Posters for this highly lauded musical are hard to come by, and this is only the second time Heritage has presented the Style C one sheet with its dazzling illustration of stars Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell. The duo absolutely shines as the dance team in this musical from MGM. It was a major coup for the studio to snatch up Astaire when he left RKO after appearing in ten films with Ginger Rogers. Ted "Vincentini" Ireland provides the jubilant artwork found on this poster, which shows slight fold wear and separations, pinholes, and small tears. There is a thin strip of toning at the bottom edge, mild foxing in the borders and folds, and a few small pieces of paper tape on the verso. Folded, Very Fine-.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
