    Description

    The Great Ziegfeld (MGM, 1936). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Winner of the Best Picture of the Year Oscar, this classic all-star musical extravaganza from MGM set a high standard for musicals to come. William Powell stars in this biopic as the legendary showman Florenz Ziegfeld alongside Luise Rainer (who won an Oscar for her role) and Myrna Loy, as his first and second wives. The wonderful original music is by Walter Donaldson and Irving Berlin and Ziegfeld performers Fanny Brice and Ray Bolger play themselves. The poster has light stains in the white field, minor crossfold separations, a stain at the bottom edge, pinholes in the top corners, and a minor corner chip. This rarely seen style is just stunning, with portraits of the three stars. It is signed "Best Wishes, Myrna Loy," "Best Wishes, Allan Jones" (Jones has an uncredited singing role in the film), and "William Powell." From the collection of Artie Kern, A/V man to Oscar-winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years, who was personal lyricist to Frank Sinatra for almost fifty years. Kern was also Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City and many of his items were on display there from 1980 to 1985, until its closing. Sammy Cahn helped Kern obtain the autographs as he was president of the hall for over 17 years; nearly all of the signatures were from his personal friends. Fine/Very Fine.
