    Description

    Free and Easy (MGM, 1930). Window Card (14" X 22"). This was silent star Buster Keaton's first talking film, in which he plays Elmer J. Butts, a hapless gas station attendant assigned to accompany lovely beauty contest winner Elvira Plunkett (Anita Page) and her mother (Trixie Friganza) to an MGM screen test in Hollywood. Along the way, Butts manages to stumble through a number of MGM productions, eventually gaining fame himself as a musical comedy star! This movie was remade twice; once in 1937 as Pick a Star, and again in 1945 as Abbott & Costello Go To Hollywood. The charming window card offered here has tanning along the edges, several small tears in the left border, edge wear, small corner bends, and surface smudging, but is still extremely presentable and attractive. For any fan of classic comedy, this piece is a must! Fine-.
