    Description

    Hips, Hips, Hooray (RKO, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Collection of Frank Buxton, of which the sale's proceeds will benefit The San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
    This was one of Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey's funniest and sexiest comedies from their early pre-Code years at RKO. Wheeler and Woolsey are flavored lipstick salesmen who hook up with lingerie model Dorothy Lee and her boss Thelma Todd - owner of Maiden America Cosmetics. Before the picture ends the comedic duo are involved in a cross-country race and a hilarious musical routine to the tune of "Keep on Doin' What You're Doin'." The poster art for this film features fabulous artwork of the boys along with Lee, Ruth Etting and Todd. Professional restoration has included touchup to the folds, pinholes, misfolds, and a mild tear at the bottom. The borders have been airbrushed to address chipping, some of which extended into the background. There is a partially removed ink censorship stamp at the top that is still visible. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
