    Description

    Show of Shows (Warner Brothers, 1929). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    In 1929 Warner Brothers spent over $18,000,000 in today's dollars producing a spectacular and lavish, all talking, mostly Technicolor, musical revue that starred many of the top Warner stars of the day. This amazing half sheet has eight scenes from the film, including everything from John Barrymore as "Richard III" reciting from Henry VI, Part III, to a young and gorgeous Myrna Loy in a specialty musical number, "Chinese Fantasy." There's a fantastic scene of European boxing title holder turned song-and-dance-man, Georges Carpentier, flanked by Patsy Ruth Miller and Alice White appear in the "If I Could Learn to Love" number. Other scenes include Frank Fay, in one of his funniest performances; "Bicycle Built for Two" with Chester Conklin, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Chester Morris, Sally Eilers, and other Warner stars; and the smashing "Lady Luck Finale," lasting a full fifteen minutes and seemingly including every dancer Warners' could find in Hollywood. There are corner pinholes, edge wear in the top border, and dust shadows in the top left and bottom right borders, with light smudges in the right and top borders. Don't overlook this spectacular testament of Hollywood showmanship! Folded, Very Fine-.
