    Description

    Top Hat (RKO, 1935). Insert (14" X 36").
    Set at a posh hotel in a very Hollywood-envisioned Venice, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance the nights away to "The Piccolino," "Cheek to Cheek," "Isn't it a Lovely Day?," and the title song. The fun plot has Rogers mistaking Astaire for her best friend's husband and trying to fend off his attentions. In terrific fashion, Edward Everett Horton, Erik Rhodes, and the irrepressible Eric Blore, provide comic support. This is one of the dancing pair's finest films and has remained a beloved classic for generations. Original paper for this title rarely turns up, and this is the first time we have been lucky enough to offer this gorgeous insert. Prior to professional restoration, it had two tears at the right edge, a smaller one at the top border, and one at the left border. There was a minor hole in the left border and a chip in the top right corner. The image area is in excellent condition and the bright colors of the superb artwork are remarkable. Rolled, Fine+ on Paper.
