Description

    Weaver Brothers and Elviry Concert Poster (circa 1940s). This comedy/music group may not be well-remembered today, but their history is quite rich. After the success of original country stars like Jimmy Walker and the Carter Family, "hillbilly" music became all the rage in America during the 1930s. Passing themselves off as "straight from Arkansaw," this real-life brother and sister team became a big hit in movies, co-starring with big names like Humphrey Bogart and Ronald Reagan (in the same film -- 1938's "Swing Your Lady"), as well as headlining the Grand Ole Opry for many years. This black and red poster was created for a "roadshow" tour, and this one is marked for two shows at the Paramount Theater in Joplin, Missouri. It measures 14" x 22", in Good+ condition. If rural, "hayseed" music and humor are your thing, this rare item is a must!
