TAKE MY LIFE (1942)
Consolidated National Film Exchange 1942 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Monte Hawley, Jeni Le Gon, The Harlem Tuff-Kids, dir: Harry M. Popkin; Consolidated National Film Exchange. Film is also known as MURDER RAP. A very rare African American poster. The Harlem Tuff Kids, African American counterparts to Monogram's East Side Kids, star in this morale-boosting comedy-drama. The kids disregard their patriotic responsibilities as America enters World War II. The hoodlums are brought into line by tough-but-kindly Sergeant Holmes (Jack Carr), who gives them a crash course in what it means to be a "Real American". Before they've been completely won over, the Tuff Kids are sucked into a murder-mystery subplot. The fact that most Black American citizens in 1942 were routinely denied the very freedoms they were expected to fight for is sidestepped in this low budget programmer. The poster is beautifully preserved on linen, expertly cleaned with unperceivable fold lines, a bit of border touch-up. FINE.
