An Original Vintage Theatrical Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

Hail Hal Roach!, a special one-sheet ("We celebrate his 20th anniversary as king of screen comedy by presenting his latest, funniest, comedy classic"; "Hal Roach All Stars, Hal Roach Musical Comedies, Our Gang, Thelma Todd, Patsy Kelly, Charley Chase, Laurel and Hardy") created in 1934 to celebrate Hal Roach's twenty years in the motion picture industry! Theaters would display this poster along with the Hal Roach movie they were showing in 1934. Note that this poster includes artwork by Al Hirschfeld of all of Roach's most famous stars including Laurel & Hardy, Our Gang, Charley Chase, Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly (Todd and Kelly made 22 comedy shorts for Hal Roach for MGM between 1933 and 1935, and they were a very rare female comedy team!), Billy Gilbert, Billy Bletcher, and Eddie Foy Jr. This is certainly a sensational poster, and it includes many of the greatest stars from both the silent era and the early sound era! Note that there was an actual party held in conjunction with this event in 1934, and all of the celebrities pictured on the poster, plus many, many more (including Jean Harlow!) attended, and we have auctioned a still from that party!
