    Description

    Perfect Day (MGM, 1929). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). From the Collection of Frank Buxton, of which the sale's proceeds will benefit The San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
    In Perfect Day (a sarcastic title to say the least) almost everything that can go wrong does as all the boys want to do is entertain their families on a nice picnic. This hilarious moment, when their car continues to break down, shows just how bad things are going to get when Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy begin their day. Co-starring in this short, was Edgar Kennedy, who would go on to a very popular series of comedy shorts himself. Professional restoration has addressed a few pinholes, mild tears, and a chip in the upper left corner. The borders and white background have been airbrushed. Fine+.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
