Bronze Venus, The (1940s)
US Lobby Card (not numbered): 11"x14" (28 x 36cm)
Director: William Nolte
Cast: Lena Horne, Ralph Cooper, Lawrence Criner, Basin Street Boys
Studio: Toddy Pictures
Re-titled re-release of the 1938 black cast musical The Duke Is Tops.
The movie was originally shot and released when Lena Horne was an unknown, making her first screen appearance.
Toddy Pictures re-released it after Horne gained stardom in Cabin In The Sky and Stormy Weather, which both came out in 1943, probably the year this movie was re-released.
Note this card shows two images of Horne; the main one shows a scene from the movie (with Ralph Cooper) when she was a young unknown, the one in the left margin is a full-length image of her once she had achieved stardom.
Condition: Fine (paper clip marks in the middle of the top and bottom borders; small surface scratches just below the "E" in "Horne" at the bottom; two soft creases to the bottom right corner; otherwise unused)
