    Description

    Swing (Micheaux Film Corporation, 1938). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Some of the most difficult posters to find in all of collecting are the ones depicting Black entertainers pre-1940. Thus, the posters for the films of the first major African American director to produce films, Oscar Micheaux, are always a treat to find. This fun poster is for one of those films that perfectly freezes a moment in time forever with several super jazz and swing numbers. Micheaux has wisely allotted half of the poster to show his hot jazz babies tearin' up the joint. Professional linenbacking and some minimal restoration has this poster shining. There was tiny paper loss in the folds and crossfold separations, and chips in the left and right borders. Fine+ on Linen.
