A poster from 1984 advertising Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's documentary "That's Dancing", which explored the history of dancing in the movies, SIGNED AND DEDICATED "To Merton Shapiro Best Wishes Gene Kelly" in white at lower right. Gene Kelly (1912-1996) was a major American dancer and choreographer, from the late 1930's through his death in 1996. He reached the peak of his fame perhaps at mid century, when he became known for such classics as "Singing in the Rain" (Debbie Reynolds) and "An American in Paris". See the long listing describing his life on Wikipedia. For this documentary, Ray Bolger, Liza Minnelli, Sammy Davis Jr., and Mikhail Baryshnikov, among others, appeared. Merton Shapiro (1924-2002) was a major theater chain owner in the Philadelphia area for many years, and was one of the first to introduce the multiple screen concept. The poster measures 42" by 28" as framed in silvery metal frame. When viewed from an angle one can see it has a number of condition issues including rumpling and light creases. The poster is available in perfect condition on the net, but to acquire one signed by the producer of the film, Gene Kelly, a name forever linked to American dance, one might have to do considerable searching. Not examined out of the frame; could possibly be shipped carefully rolled to reduce shipping cost.
