    Description

    The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (RKO, 1939). One Sheet (27" x 41") Style A. In their last RKO film, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in this classic biopic about legendary ballroom dancers Vernon and Irene Castle, whose career was brought to a sudden close by Vernon's death during World War I. This film also marked the last time Astaire and Rogers would work together until The Barkely's of Broadway, ten years later. This attractive one sheet, with multiple images of Fred and Ginger, had crossfold separation, fold wear, and a long tear in the left side at the bottom, but professional restoration has expertly addressed all these issues, making this a true prize that displays quite well. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
