Stewart, Jimmy James  Photo Signed Autograph Born To Dance
This item is an 8" X 11",black and white lithograph photo of actor Jimmy Stewart in a scene from the 1936 Movie-"Born To Dance". The lithograph photo has been mounted on an 8" X 11" piece of photography paper.A never-completed stage musical was the source for the MGM superproduction Born to Dance. The plot is another three-sailors-on-leave affair, with Ted (James Stewart), Mush (Buddy Ebsen) and Gunny (Sid Silvers, who also co-wrote the script) romancing the eminently romanceable Nora (Eleanor Powell), Peppy (Frances Langford) and Jenny (Una Merkel). Nora aspires to become a dancing star, but her career nearly ends before it begins when she inadvertently comes between Broadway luminary Lucy James (Virginia Bruce) and her producer-lover McKay (Alan Dinehart). If anyone watching back in 1936 really cared about the plot, they probably weren't music lovers. The lovely Cole Porter score (his first written directly for the screen) includes "I've Got You Under My Skin", sung by Virginia Bruce to James Stewart, and "Easy to Love", warbled by Stewart to Eleanor Powell. Highlights include Reginald Gardiner's impersonation of a symphony-conducting traffic cop (a routine he'd previously performed on stage) and Eleanor Powell's climactic tap routine on board an art-deco battleship (a sequence later re-deployed for the climax of 1944's I Dood It). The lithograph photo has been autographed on the front by Jimmy Stewart with a fountain pen in blue..............................BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION..............
