Description

    Strike Up the Band (MGM, 1940). Poster (40" X 60"). Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney made a number of films together and in the process became two of the highest paid stars of the 1940s. In this programmer, Rooney starts a swing band in his high school and has to raise money to travel to Chicago so the band can enter a national contest! Of course the only way they can raise money is to "put on a show" (which happened in every Rooney and Garland film), which made a great excuse to put as many songs into the picture as possible. Audiences loved every minute of it, and it made their movies some of the most popular of the era. There are areas of paper loss around the borders, primarily in the corners. There is one longer tear that runs vertically down the center, light surface wrinkles and several smaller border tears and dings. The great sketch artist Al Hirschfeld created the terrific characters displayed on this poster. Fine on Paper.
