GOODBYE BROADWAY (1938) One sheet poster$500.00
Vintage original 41 x 27″ (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Alice Brady, Charles Winninger, Tom Brown, Dorthea Kent, Willie Best, Donald Meek, dir: Ray McCarey; Universal. Lively caricature art highlights this poster for a story about a once-famous vaudeville and Broadway couple who arrive to play in a small conservative Connecticut town with a troupe of crazy performers. This low budget musical was a remake of the early talkie THE SHANNONS OF BROADWAY which featured real-life Broadway couple James and Lucille Gleason.
The artist is not credited and the poster has a contemporary feel. It is on linen. There has been touch-up at corners and touch-up at fold lines and a bit of paint filling-in on lines and junctures. There are a few tears addressed just above the copyright at the bottom left corner. VERY GOOD-FINE.
