    Description

    A Pete Smith Specialty (MGM, 1953). One Sheet (27" X 41") "Bus Pests."
    Known well for his dry, matter of fact narrations that turned the everyday into the hilarious, Pete Smith produced and voiced 150 short comedy documentaries for MGM. Covering everything from bowling to Radium, Smith brought laughter to countless audience members with these short subject one reelers, often with slapstick scenes acted out by stuntman Dave O'Brien. Nominated for 17 Academy Awards and winner of two, Pete Smith found a place for himself and his wry brand of comedy in theaters across America until his retirement in 1955, just two years after he made this short. A first time offer at Heritage, this comical one sheet has had professional touchup to the folds, a small chip in the upper crossfold, and a few chips in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.
