Description

    Whoopee! (United Artists, 1930). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    The Broadway play of the same name was a smash hit of the 1928-29 season with Flo Ziegfeld producing and Eddie Cantor starring, as they would for this film version as well. Cantor's zany antics and musical numbers, including the Walter Donaldson gems "Makin' Whoopee" and "My Baby Just Cares for Me," make this an enjoyable treat. What makes this half sheet so nice are the Goldwyn Girls (which included Claire Dodd, Virginia Bruce, and 14-year-old Betty Grable) as they're dressed for the Indian Maiden number. This poster had a small tear in the right border, chip in the top left corner, a bend to the lower left corner and touchup to the yellow background. The borders were airbrushed as well to give them a cleaner appearance. This is a truly beautiful poster from an early musical. As an interesting note, this was one of the few films made in the 2-strip Technicolor process at the time. Color films probably would have become much more prevalent if not for the depression when the studios were forced to cut expenses. Fine+ on Linen.
