    Description

    Hail Hal Roach! (MGM, 1934). One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    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. There is only some edge wear in the top border, mild crossfold separations, and two extra vertical creases. Very Fine on Linen.
