    Description

    Moon Over Miami (20th Century Fox, 1941). Very Fine-. Insert (14" X 36").
    What's a girl to do when her inheritance proves to be worthless? She packs her bags, moves to Miami with her sisters, and begins trying to land a rich husband, of course! The plot provided for comedy and music and lots of Technicolor glamour, and this insert proves the point. Pinup artist Alberto Vargas created some of the poster images for this Betty Grable Fox musical, and is often attributed with the sultry artwork that graces this desirable insert. Some, however, believe it to be the work of McClelland Barclay, as he was doing freelance work for Fox around the time this campaign was done. Regardless, the image is a stunner, making this a highly sought after poster, which looks wonderful after receiving professional restoration to correct edge wear, a few pinholes, and slight creases. Also repaired were small tears and minor creases. The borders and verso have been airbrushed. Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
