    Description

    Flying Down to Rio (RKO, 1934). Pre-War Belgian (24.5" X 33.25").
    Here is the film that kicked off the career of the most popular dance team in cinematic history - Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Flying Down to Rio ostensibly starred Dolores Del Rio and Gene Raymond, but it was Astaire and Rogers that stole the spotlight with their incredible dance number done to the tune of "The Carioca." In fact, as shown on this very rare Belgian poster, Carioca was the film's title in Europe. It was a tremendous hit there, just as it was here in the States. What makes this poster particularly desirable is that Astaire and Rogers are both pictured on it, something that didn't occur on the U.S. one sheet. Beautifully printed in stone lithography, this poster has had light touchup to the folds, with a few minor unaddressed chips and tears at the edges. The linen has been trimmed to the borders, leaving the paper of this exceptional poster unaffected. Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
