#CH326-10 - Rochester in "What's Buzzin' Cousin?" Movie Poster Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1943 movie "What's Buzzin' Cousin?".  "Rochester" was well known as the Butler on the Jack Benny Radio Show where he became the first African American to have a regular role on a Nationwide radio program. Ann Miller got top billing in this movie, but Rochester was the big draw. It says "Rochester's Clowning is good for the funny bone", and he is wearing a butler outfit in the picture. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
$2.50
