This is a single-fold broadside or handbill for shows at the Harlem Opera House featuring Al Cooper and the Savoy Sultans. This sheet has old crease lines from being folded and likely placed in a pocket along with some small tears and light stains. It is somewhat fragile but is still a very nice display piece. The Harlem Opera House was built in Harlem in the 1880's. By the 1930's it had changed hands more than once and was presenting jazz bands on stage along with variety acts and music. The act touted in this flyer is Al Cooper and the Savoy Sultans, a jazz group most associated with the Savoy Ballroom. The Savoy Sultans did a few recordings and Dizzy Gillespie played briefly with them. One side of this flyer advertises an upcoming show with the Sultans, The Juggling Jewels and the movie, One Million B.C. with Victor Mature and Carole Landis which debuted in 1940. The other side is divided into two panels, once again advertising the Sultans but with the Gray Family and the movie Edison, The Man starring Spencer Tracy. This is a nice bit of ephemera from the heyday of Swing and Big Band jazz. Quite uncommon. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 1 pages
