Description

    Follow the Fleet (RKO, 1936). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Few cinematic pairings are as perfect, enduring, and beloved as the dancing duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and when they are combined with a score by the incomparable Irving Berlin, nothing could be finer. Astaire is a Navy man who is on shore leave in San Francisco and determined to rekindle a romance with former girlfriend Rogers. He is soon helping her re-vamp an old ship into a nightclub and aiding in her sister's (Harriet Hilliard) relationship with a naval officer played by Randolph Scott. Rogers and Astaire are in top form performing some of their most cherished numbers such as: "Let Yourself Go," "I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket," and "Let's Face the Music and Dance." This film is notable as well for two small players on their way to stardom in Hollywood -- Betty Grable and Lucille Ball. A magnificent large format poster, this beauty features sumptuous color, one of the best portraits of the dancing stars, and has never before been offered by Heritage. Other than being mounted on linen, little restoration work has been done. It is in excellent condition, with only a few slight surface abrasions in the borders, a small tear in the lower left corner, and very minor fold wear. Do not let this very rare gem from Hollywood's musical heyday pass you by! Very Fine on Linen.
