Price: $125.00

Quantity: 1 available


This is a lobby card featuring actress Nellie Hill and an unidentified extra in the black-cast movie, Murder with Music. The lobby card has some very minor wear and is about near fine. The movie starred Nellie Hill and Bob Howard but featured a number of well-known musical stars including Noble Sissle and Skippy Williams. Memorabilia and theatre-related items from this movie are truly rare. This still was part of A Cinema Apart, or the Beverly and Larry Richards Collection, which was amassed by Larry Richards over a number of years. A respected historian and a librarian at the Philadelphia Free Library, and author of the book African American Films Through 1959: A Comprehensive, Illustrated Filmography, Mr. Richards was deeply passionate and knowledgeable about African-American culture and history. In 2008, Mr. Richards tragically and suddenly died quite young, leaving behind his collection of hundreds of motion picture posters featuring African-American stars and addressing African-American issues, as well as rare broadsides, window cards, and ephemera. Additionally, he possessed items relating to African-American and slavery history. His collection has been deemed so culturally important that a section of it is now in the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. His wife, Dr. Beverly Richards, now oversees the collection, and has lectured on and exhibited the items both nationally and internationally. ; Tinted B&W Image from MOvie; Oblong Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 1 pages
