Brice, Fanny My Man Sheet Music 1928 Signed Autograph
"If You Want The Rainbow You Must Have The Rain"-1928-Remick Music-sheet music. This song is featured in the 1928-Warner Brothers Vitaphone Movie-"My Man". The movie stars Fanny Brice and she is featured on the front cover in an original scene.A largely silent musical, My Man is primarily a showcase for the enormously popular Ziegfeld Follies star Fanny Brice who plays the owner of a costume shop who tries to deal with her free-spirited troublesome sister while simultaneously trying to hang onto her relationship with a homeless physical culture demonstrator. Brice and he decide to marry and as they prepare for their wedding, her sister gets jealous and tries to seduce him. Though the story isn't much, Brice does perform some of her most famous sketches and even sings a couple songs..............Widely celebrated as one of the most beloved comediennes in the history of entertainment, stage and screen star Fanny Brice tickled audience's funny bones for more than a decade as the main attraction of Broadway's Ziegfeld Follies in the early 1900s. She later moved successfully into film and radio, where her comic talents helped her flourish as the lovably bratty Baby Snooks. The third child in a family that included four siblings, Brice was born Fanny Borach to immigrant saloon proprietors in the Lower East Side of New York in 1891. She was smitten with the life of a performer from an early age, and performances in her father's saloon soon led her to participate in a local amateur talent contest. After taking home the prize, the adorable lass charmed moviegoers by singing and playing piano in a local cinema. She dropped out of school after the eighth grade and worked as a chorus girl in a burlesque review (changing her name in hopes of avoiding Jewish typecasting), and soon found herself in increased demand for stage roles. In 1910, Brice was approached by Max Spiegel to star in College Girls, and she, in turn, asked songwriter Irving Berlin to write her some memorable songs for the occasion. The resulting tune, "Sadie Salome, Go Home," quickly become the actress' trademark. The sheet music has been autographed on the front cover by Fanny Brice in black fountain pen.....BOTH SHEET MUSIC AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN NICE CONDITION..............
