Description

    Rhythm Rodeo (1938). One Sheet (28.25" X 41.75").
    Although little is know about this all-black comedy musical, it is significant as the second film to feature Herb "The Bronze Buckaroo" Jeffries, who would become one of the most significant figures in the black film industry of the 1930s and 1940s. A talented singer, Jeffries began his show business career fronting for Earl "Fatha" Hines and Duke Ellington. After several years of singing with bands, Jeffries tried his luck in Hollywood, hoping to make it as a singing cowboy in the style of Gene Autry. His first film, Harlem on the Prairie (1937) - the first all-talking black Western - was a success, setting Jeffries on a trajectory to become one of Hollywood's most respected black actors, as he offered a strong, positive alternative to the demeaning, stereotypical roles that were common at that time. This remarkable poster had edge wear, fold wear, and chipping in the center horizontal fold, but expert professional restoration has rendered these slight flaws virtually invisible. This is a historic poster that you will no doubt display proudly. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
