    Show Boat (Universal, 1936). Very Fine- on Paper. Insert (14" X 36").
    Grand and glorious, this scarce insert is from the second filmed version of the Edna Ferber, Jerome Kern, and Oscar Hammerstein II musical Show Boat which is considered by many to be the best of the three. The film stars Irene Dunne as Magnolia Hawks, a role she'd previously played on stage, with co-stars Allan Jones, Hattie McDaniel and Paul Robeson. Professional restoration has been applied to correct fold wear, small surface scuffs, and a minor chip in the bottom right corner. There was also a moderate horizontal tear in the bottom border, and the borders have been airbrushed. Very Fine- on Paper.

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