20th Century Fox Original One Sheet Poster 27x41 Folded

20th Century Fox pulled out all the stops to showcase CinemaScope in this musical extravaganza about a vaudeville family negotiating the mountains and valleys of Show Business. For the music they turned to Irving Berlin, who was able to pull from his already monstrous catalog of songs several great numbers for set pieces. It is in this film that Monroe does her famous rendition of "Heat Wave". Not a terrific singer, but a reasonably good one she sells the song with her incredible screen presence. Ethel Merman and Dan Dailey are the parents of three children (Mitzi Gaynor, Donald O'Connor and Johnnie Ray) and they all comprise The Five Donahues. They are the very definition of troopers as penned by Henry and Phoebe Ephron. Deftly directed by Walter Lang. There's a little comedy, a little heartbreak and a lot of glitter in this old fashioned but thoroughly enjoyable film. The poster is in fine condition, but would benefit from linen backing. Some chips in the border area and some minor fold separation, but colors are vivid.
