DescriptionSwing Time (RKO, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41") William Rose Artwork.
Fred Astaire stars as a careless band leader who has to prove himself worthy of his fiancee, but when he meets Gingers Rogers along the way, things become complicated. The dazzling pair are absolute perfection as they sing and dance to Jerome Kern's sensational hits "Pick Yourself Up," "A Fine Romance," "Never Gonna Dance," and "The Way You Look Tonight," which won the Academy Award for Best Song. George Stevens directs this happy-go-lucky gem, which won composers Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields the Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song. Highly sought after, this heartwarming one sheet displays nicely after professional restoration corrected fold wear and separation with chipping and tears off of the vertical fold. There was a mild tear in the bottom border, and the poster has a few unaddressed pinholes in the upper border and background. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
