DescriptionHi-De-Ho (All-American, 1947). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (28" X 41.5").
Cab Calloway stars as himself in this musical tale filled with gangsters, night clubs, and jealousy in a plot inspired by Cab's biggest hit, "Minnie the Moocher." Mainly a vehicle for Calloway and his talented orchestra, this film featured other great jazz songs of the day like "St. James' Infirmary" and a cappella version of "Minnie Was a Hep Cat," as well as performances by the sonorous Peters Sisters, the tap dancing Miller Brothers, and an appearance by Dusty Fletcher in a presentation of his famous sketch, "Open the Door, Richard." The poster had fold wear with tape stains, small tears, a piece missing at the bottom vertical fold, and pinholes. After being linen-backed and touched up, some of this is still apparent yet still displays very well and is a very rare poster.
Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
