New York, New York: Astor Pictures Corp., 1947. 11 x 17 in. framed 14 1⁄4 x 20 1⁄4 in.
3⁄4 in. closed tear on left edge, else near fine.
Slim Gaillard, Bam Brown, Scatman Crothers, and Mabel Lee play beautiful jazz.
Gaillard sings nonsensically. White audiences-- specifically college students as the
poster points out--are overtaken by the beautiful chaos of Gaillard and his companions
just as we are years later.
A scarce version of this fun poster for a little-known and barely distributed picture.
Crothers’ second film appearance before he went on to a career as a screen actor.
