    Cabin in the Sky (MGM, 1943). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). Poor Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. He's married to a faithful and loving wife (Ethel Waters) but find himself tempted by the alluring Lena Horne at every turn. Little does he know, he's part of the eternal clash between God's General (Kenneth Spencer) and Lucifer, Jr. (Rex Ingram). Though MGM knew that the film could not succeed in the segregated South, it still spared no expense on this all-black extravaganza. The studio gave the project (and a huge budget) to first time feature director Vincente Minnelli and the film does not disappoint, thanks to stellar musical numbers including an appearance by Louis Armstrong. Al Hirschfeld art accents this poster which features great images of Anderson, Waters and Horne. There was a sizeable tear in the lower left border and chips at the edges and image. The folds had signs of wear and separation and there is a bit of post-restoration smudging across the surface. Still, this is a a fantastic item from this incredibly important film and will make a fabulous addition to any serious collection. Fine on Linen.
