DescriptionThe Gay Divorcee (RKO, 1934). Hanging Mobile (13" X 21") DS.
Legendary dancing partners Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in their second outing together, following their hit debut in Flying Down to Rio. The film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Art Direction, and Best Music. It would win for Best Song, "The Continental," the first time this award was presented. Making its premier appearance at Heritage, this charming mobile presents the pair dancing step for step, and has had light touchup applied to several creases, some of which once had cracks on one of the sides. There are vertical creases in Astaire and Rogers' arms, horizontal creases in their legs, and vertical creases in the mobile's base. Still visible is some mild edge wear, light surface scuffs, and a few small paper lifts. Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
