    Description

    Cabin in the Sky (MGM, 1943). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C.
    A grand production filled with stellar musical performances, Cabin in the Sky is as entertaining today as it was the day it was filmed. A monumental picture by any standard, this was one of the first films produced by a major studio to feature an all-black cast, a cast that included some of the biggest, most talented names in Hollywood, including Ethel Waters, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong, Mantan Moreland, and Butterfly McQueen. The first feature film to be directed by Vincente Minnelli, it tells the story of Little Joe (Anderson), an inveterate gambler who is shot during an illicit outing to a casino. His wife (Waters) prays for his soul, which leads to a major battle between the forces of Good and Evil. The incredible poster offered here, featuring fantastic art by the highly regarded Al Hirschfeld, is one of the most sought after posters of the war years. Restoration has replaced the bottom border, and bottom left lower credits starting at "Louis Armstrong," (the bottom right with "Duke Ellington" is original), and addressed fold wear with chips, and the piece now shows nicely. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
