DescriptionRoad to Morocco (Paramount, 1942). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, and Bob Hope laugh their way to Morocco on this fun poster for Road to Morocco, the third "Road to..." film from the trio. The film was a hit upon its release, and one of the film's songs, "Moonlight Becomes You," even topped the Billboard charts for two weeks in 1942. The poster offered here is backed on linen, and restoration has addressed edge and fold wear, creases, pinholes, moderate tears and fold separations, and chips. There was some missing paper in the top border that extended slightly into the background of the image area, and the image of Bing Crosby's eye at the center crossfold has been replaced. There is also a bit of faint ink bleedthrough between Dorothy Lamour and Bob Hope, and some faint smudges and stains are still visible on the poster. Overall, the poster displays well after restoration.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
