DescriptionRio Rita (RKO, 1929). One Sheet (27" X 41").
RKO Radio's very first musical was a box office triumph. Featuring a lavish Technicolor sequence in its last reel, it stars Bebe Daniels along with John Boles and the comedy team of Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey (in their very first film). Paper is scarce on this title, and this is the first one sheet for the film we at Heritage have ever offered. Incredibly well preserved, this brilliant piece of stone litho artistry show few signs of handling, displaying slight fold wear and separations, small creases, and a few minor tears. There are some soft surface scuffs in John Boles' image, and the poster has a minor chip in the upper right corner. Folded, Very Fine.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
