    Description

    Honeymoon Lane (Paramount, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    When the King of Belgravia (Armand Kaliz) visits an America seaside hotel run by Mother Murphy (Mary Carr) and her daughter Gerty (Ray Dooley), heroic Tim Dugan (Eddie Dowling) sets himself up as the monarch's official protector, saving His Highness from the evil depredations of gambler Arnold Bookstein (Grant Whitlock) - an obvious parody of notorious organized crime kingpin Arnold Rothstein - and his retinue of gangsters. Based on a popular Broadway play (in which Dowling also starred), this film marks the only on-screen appearance of husband and wife comedy team Eddie Dowling and Ray Dooley. A true Renaissance man, Dowling - who appeared in several pictures without his wife - was an accomplished composer, song writer, lyricist, author, producer, director and actor, who founded the USO Camp Shows and held honorary degrees from four universities, while Dooley - the daughter of a circus performer - enjoyed several decades of success on The Great White Way from 1919 until 1956. This quintessential 1930s couple shines on this rare one sheet, offered here for the very first time in a Heritage auction. Expert professional restoration has addressed signs of handling, such as a chip in the left border, and small holes in the bottom border. Additionally, approximately one inch of paper missing from the top border has been replaced. From the Berwick Discovery. Fine+ on Linen.
