Vintage original 27 x 41” (68 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster (style A), USA. Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth, Adolphe Menjou, Xavier Cugat and Orchestra; dir: William A. Seiter; Columbia. Lovely musical, based on a plot of Aristophanes. With an excellent score by Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer, the film presented songs which became standards, including “I’m Old Fashioned,” and “Dearly Beloved.” Of course, Rita Hayworth proved to be Fred Astaire’s most elegant dance partner. The image of Hayworth dancing with Astaire is usually attributed to Hurrell. On linen, there has been routine background retouching, VERY FINE.
