An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Swedish Movie Poster (measures 27 1/4" x 39 1/4") (Learn More)

Broadway Melody of 1936, the 1935 Roy Del Ruth New York City romantic theater stage acting comedy musical ("Let's go to the giant show!"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Jack Benny, Eleanor Powell, Robert Taylor, Una Merkel, Frances Langford, Sid Silvers, Buddy Ebsen (in his first movie!), June Knight, Vilma Ebsen (Buddy Ebsen's sister, in her only movie role), Harry Stockwell, and Nick Long Jr. Note that this movie was originally titled "Broadway Melody of 1935", but it likely had its name changed to "Broadway Melody of 1936", because it was released near the end of 1935, and they didn't want it to seem "dated"! Also note that this movie includes a wacky sequence where the woman hired to star in the show does not show up, and Sid Silvers has to dress up in drag and convince Jack Benny he is the female star! Note that June Knight was a striking blonde who appeared in 12 movies between 1930 and 1940, two of them in uncredited roles. Perhaps she had bad luck, but her movies were very forgettable, and she is completely forgotten today. If anyone knows more about her or what happened to her career, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
