    Description

    Stormy Weather (20th Century Fox, 1943). Title Card and Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14").
    Possibly the greatest black musical of the Golden Age - and one of the finest musicals of any description ever set to film - this stellar picture spotlights the talents of such luminaries as Lena Horne, Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson, Cab Calloway, Katherine Dunham, Fats Waller (in his last film appearance before his untimely death at the age of 39), and the Nicholas Brothers, among others, a veritable "Who's Who" of jazz in the early 1940s. Paper from this movie is always popular with collectors, and in this lot we present the highly desirable title card and three scene cards. All the cards have pinholes in the top corners and very light corner bends in the lower right. The title card shows additional pinholes in the top of the image area and in the bottom center, and a crease in the bottom right corner. The "revue" card has some foxing in the right border, a stain and a crease in the bottom right corner, and a light dust shadow in the bottom left. The card that features Horne and Robinson shows some foxing at the bottom edge, and minor tears at the right edge. In spite of these minor flaws, the cards offered here are very attractive and presentable, and will make a welcome addition to any collection. Very Fine.
