DescriptionThe Bronze Venus (Toddy Pictures, R-1943). One Sheet (27" X 41") Original Title: The Duke is Tops.
Lena Horne had her screen debut in 1938 with the release of the all-black musical, The Duke is Tops. In 1943 after her great successes in Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather, the film was re-titled The Bronze Venus with Horne prominently featured in the ad campaign. In a typical backstage story, Horne plays a small-time singer torn between two men, her old friend and co-star Duke (Ralph Cooper), and slick talent scout Marshall (Monte Hawley) who promises her the Big Time. Horne is effervescent in her youthful beauty and charm and it's reflected here in this colorful poster which, prior to restoration, had a partially trimmed left border, and fold wear with some paper loss. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
