An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Three-Sheet Movie Poster (3sh; measures 42" x 82" [107 x 208 cm]) (Learn More)

A Night in the Moulin Rouge (also released as "Ding Dong Girlies" and "Ding Dong"), the 1951 W. Merle Connell burlesque stripper exotic dancer sexploitation movie ("Ding-Dong!"; "Spicy-Saucy!"; "Naughty but nice!"; "OOO, La! LA!!"; "Snappy Saucy Spicy"; "Girls Girls Girls"; "Oh! La-La (Nuf-Sed)"; "French Style GIRLS") starring Illona ("The Bavarian Orchid"), Iva Pratt ("and the Red Mill Cuties"), Jennie Lee, Jack Little, and George 'Beetlepuss' Lewis. This movie (like other movies that followed it in the 1950s) presented a sort of "evening at a burlesque show". Note that, despite implications of the title, the movie was actually filmed at the "Moulin Rouge Theater", a burlesque theater in Oakland, California! Note that this movie is very similar to the 1951 movie "The French Follies", in that both of them were filmed at a "strip club", where the strippers did their actual routines (except that they did it for a camera in an empty club). That is odd, because the two movies were made by different companies, but maybe someone saw the first movie and then approached the club about doing a similar movie, and they agreed. Some of the same performers appear in both films. In this movie, the soundtrack is pre-recorded, and it doesn't appear that the girls are hearing that music, while in "French Follies", either the music was recorded while the girls were performing, or more likely, it was added later, but because it is the music they were performing to.
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is an extremely rare poster. We previously auctioned another example of it, but that one had the entire top blank area trimmed off, extending into the top of the girl's feathers.

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Note that this poster ships in a very long tube (at least 33" long, but possibly 50" long or more). Therefore the shipping for this poster will be more than that for a poster that ships in a tube 32" or shorter, and possibly much more. Please bear this added shipping expense in mind before bidding on this poster. You can tell how long of a tube this poster needs to ship in by looking at the shorter dimension of its length and width and then adding 4" to that (so a 47" x 63" poster will need to ship in a 51" long tube).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had small paper loss at some crossfolds and small tears and tiny paper loss on parts of some folds in the middle third of the poster, with some scuffs in the solid black areas, which may be a minor printing defect. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
