MAYA ANGELOU | CALYPSO HEAT WAVE (1957) Set of 2 photos


[Los Angeles: Columbia Pictures, 1957]. Two (2) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photos, both keybook photos with punchholes at top (as was the norm) and with mimeographed text on verso, fine.

At the beginning of her illustrious career Maya Angelou worked as a dancer, and the then-Calypso music craze in the US led to this movie in which the young Angelou appeared. The text erroneously refers to her as a “Cuban singer-dancer”.
