DescriptionFollow the Fleet & Other Lot (RKO, 1936). Fine+. Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14").
Few cinematic pairings are as beloved and enduring as the dancing duo of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, especially when combined with scores by the likes of Irving Berlin, Harry Warren, and Ira Gershwin. The team is in top form in both Follow the Fleet and The Barkleys of Broadway, performing some of their most cherished numbers like "Let Yourself Go," "I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," and "Let's Face the Music and Dance!" Both of these cards have such indications of usage as slight edge wear, mild creases, minor chips, and pinholes. Follow the Fleet has had touchup applied to many of these issues, as well as small tears, and it has had its borders and blue background airbrushed. There is a minor trim along its right edge. The Barkleys of Broadway has a moderate tear in the top border, a minor splice in the lower border, and a small bit of writing in the top left corner. Also visible is unobtrusive staining, slight toning, and minor pieces of cellophane tape in the borders that wrap around to the verso. Fine+.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
