    Harlem Follies (Classic Pictures, 1949). One Sheet (28" X 41").
    This "Burlesque" feature was intended for segregated audiences in the day and featured a number of acts from Black Burlesque including Princess R'Wanda, Monique, "Chicago" Carl and Ruth Mason. All performing under the story of a nightclub variety show about to go under unless they can impress a producer with money to fund them. The film seems to have stayed in distribution throughout the 1950s as the censor board records suggest some sequences were removed and others added over time. Heritage has never offered a copy of this rare poster before and we aren't aware of anyone who has previously. The poster has been professionally restored to address a few border chips as well as a missing upper right and lower left corner chip. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
