    Mystery in Swing (Aetna Films Corp., 1940)
    One sheet, linen-backed poster
    28.5" x 43"

    Starring Monte Hawley, Robert Webb, Tommie Moore, Edward Thompson, Buck Woods, Jess Lee Brooks, Josephine Edwards, Sybil Lewis, and Marguerite Whitten. Directed by Arthur Dreifuss.

    This all-black cast star in a musical mystery, which chronicles the search for a killer who murdered a talented trumpet player, Prince Ellis (Webb). Linda Carroll, a young woman who is enamored with Ellis, ignores her father's repeated warnings to stay away from the musician. When Ellis is murdered in a club, Linda's father is the obvious suspect. However, it turns out that Prince Ellis was not as popular as he seemed and that many people had their own motives for wanting him dead.

    Condition: The poster has been folded, and has creases. Minor cross fold separations have been repaired. There is slight soiling at the folds, else good with bold colors.
