    Description

    Shall We Dance (RKO, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The seventh pairing of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers finds them involved in a fake marriage scheme, with hilarious complications. Astaire plays a phony Russian ballet dancer who falls for stage dancer Rogers, with fun support from the brilliant comedians Edward Everett Horton and Eric Blore. It's considered one of the duo's best performances with such classic musical numbers as "They All Laughed," "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," and "They Can't Take That Away From Me," written by George and Ira Gershwin, coupled with wonderful direction by Mark Sandrich. Astaire and Roger's dance routines include the famed number done on roller skates, a scene recreated on this charming one sheet. It looks fantastic after professional conservation, which has corrected fold separations, pinholes, and chips in the folds. There were several tears in the interior, including a a horizontal tear from the right border to Astaire's back. The top and side borders were trimmed and have been replaced, and the bottom border has been airbrushed. Some of the letters in the credits and title have also been airbrushed. Good on Linen.


    Estimate: $3,500 - $7,000.
