    Description

    The Jazz Singer (Warner Brothers, 1929). Austrian Three Sheet (50" X 110.75"). A.H. Waldner Studio Artwork.
    As every movie fan knows, after twenty years of silent films The Jazz Singer kicked off the revolution of talking pictures as the first full-length sound feature. Produced by Warner Brothers with their novel Vitaphone sound process, Al Jolson became the first man to ever speak on the silver screen. His first words were prophetic -- "Wait a minute, wait a minute, you ain't heard nothin' yet!" The production costs for the film totaled $422,000, a large sum for the cash-strapped studio. But the picture was a hit, creating a worldwide sensation and virtually saving Warner Brothers. Offered for the first time by Heritage, this striking Austrian three sheet was used at the Vienna premiere of the film and features bold artwork by the A.H. Waldner studio. It has had light touchup applied to the folds, mild tears in the bottom edges of the panels, and vertical misfolds. There is some writing bleedthrough in the left background and faint image ghosting still visible. Though backed on paper, this poster comes in its original three separate pieces. Very Fine on Paper.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
