WHAT GOES UP (1939) Three sheet poster


[New York]: Sepia Art Pictures, [1939]. Vintage original 78 x 41″ (198 x 104 cm.) three sheet film poster, conserved on linen, very good.

A genuinely scarce poster for a pre-WWII Black cast feature comedy film written, directed by, and starring Eddie Green — demonstrating that Oscar Micheaux was not the only African American film director in the 1930s. Very little information is available about this comedy, which appears to be itself every bit as elusive as this poster. Costar Babe Matthews was married to Green and, in the 1930s, she was a very popular vocal artist whose repertoire contained everything from gospel to blues.
