DescriptionWhite Christmas (Paramount, 1954). Insert (14" X 36").
In 1953, Fred Astaire decided to "retire" from films, leaving a hole in the cast of White Christmas. The part was then re-written for Donald O'Connor, but he also had to drop out of the project. Finally, in a move that saved the picture, Danny Kaye was selected as a zero-hour replacement. Kaye and co-star Bing Crosby are featured on this festive insert, along with costars Rosemary Clooney and Vera Allen. Touchup has been applied to the folds, horizontal creases, staple holes, and small tears. There were a couple of tears from the right border into the background, one of which had a small chip. The borders and white background have been airbrushed, with some mild post-restoration cracks. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
