    Description

    Monkey Business (20th Century Fox, 1952). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Howard Hawks directed this screwball comedy which stars Cary Grant as Dr. Barnaby Fulton who experiments with developing a fountain-of-youth elixir. When one of his lab monkeys mixes up a concoction that really does have youthful properties, Fulton accidentally takes a dose, and feels like a kid again -- one who is interested in his boss's secretary, Marilyn Monroe. Ginger Rogers plays Fulton's wife who also drinks the mix, with similar hilarious results. A gorgeous poster, it shows only pinholes in the corners, and an extra horizontal fold at the bottom. It is signed by stars Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. From the collection of Artie Kern, A/V man to Oscar winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years, who was also personal lyricist to Frank Sinatra for almost fifty years. Kern was also Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City and many of his items were on display there from 1980-1985, until its closing. Sammy Cahn helped Mr. Kern obtain the autographs as he was president of the hall for over 17 years and almost all of the signatures were from his personal friends. As many are aware, Cary Grant's signature was almost impossible to obtain unless you knew him or someone who knew him! Very Fine+.
