DescriptionHearts in Dixie (Fox, 1929). Folded, Very Fine+. Swedish One Sheet (28" X 39.5").
Recognized as the first talkie all-black cast, all-singing, all-dancing film produced in Hollywood, this film was begun as a short subject but expanded to feature length. Clarence Muse was the star of the film but the spotlight was stolen by Stepin Fetchit, as the good-for-nothing son-in-law. Fetchit would go on to stardom playing the characterization of a slow-witted, jive-talkin', lazy black man, which offended African-Americans at the time. He was a major attraction in motion pictures (primarily the 1930s) and is still found offensive today, more than 50 years after he has faded from the screen. This fabulous poster is one of only three Swedish known for this famous film of "Separate Cinema."
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
