    Description

    Hail Hal Roach (MGM, 1934). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Al Hirschfeld Artwork.
    This is an absolutely amazing piece of film history. It's a one sheet put out by MGM to announce that in 1934, the twentieth year of Roach's studio, the theatre would be proudly distributing comedy shorts by Hal Roach. This would be a solid and successful year for Roach as evidenced by the stars on the poster, all of whom would appear in shorts for him in 1934. From top to bottom, this one sheet pays excellent tribute to MGM's shining "All Stars": a distinguished portrait of Roach above the Our Gang kids with Eddie Foy Jr, Billy Bletcher, and Billy Gilbert to their right, the very popular team of Patsy Kelly and Thelma Todd, Charley Chase, and of course, Laurel and Hardy. And who better to interpret this choice lot of merry-makers than the man of mirth himself, Al Hirschfeld. Well preserved, this colorful one sheet shows mild edge wear, slight fold separations, minor chips and tears at the edges, and subtle ink transfer from writing on the verso. There are slivers of paper loss at the top edge as well as a few strips of paper tape on the verso.
