    Description

    Hi-De-Ho (All-American, 1947). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This was an important feature starring the legendary Cab Calloway and the story revolved around the lyrics of his biggest song, "Minnie the Moocher." Calloway was the scat singing leader of one of the most popular African American big bands in the country. From the early 1930s through the late 1940s, Cab would employ in his band some of the most popular performers of the jazz era including, Dizzy Gillespie, "Chu" Berry, "Doc" Cheatham and many more. In 1931, he would record his most famous song, "Minnie the Moocher" which sometimes went by the title "Hi-de-ho" and in fact, Cab wrote a line in the song stating, "I'm the Hi-de-ho man." It's only fitting then that this amazing poster would go under the title Hi-de-ho and essentially become the best Cab Calloway poster ever created. This beautiful one sheet had pinholes in the corners as well as some fold separation. The professional linen backing has corrected all so that the poster now displays beautifully. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
