Female Japanese Theatrical Revue Magazines
2 Female Japanese Theatrical Revue Magazines
Japan 1953 Paper 
TEXT IN JAPANESE. Three rare magazines for Japanese theatrical revues that featured only women. Each magazine is well illustrated with photographs of the stars of the revues. Two of the magazines appear to be from the same theatrical company. All three have beautiful full color covers. One of the magazines have page folds due to the binding otherwise all are vg. The best example of this kind of theatrical presentation can be found in the film "Sayonara" in which Marlon Brando has a forbidden love affair with the star of the Matsubayashi Theater Revue. Since I don't read Japanese these magazines might very well be from that company.

New York 1939 1st Printing Oversize Paper 
An original rare 16pg. large souvenir program printed in red and blue for a loud and garish musical comedy revue that used to be a staple of Broadway back in the good old days. This one featured Bobby Clark, the forgotten Luella Gear and is most notable for an early appearance and Broadway debut of Abbott and Costello. Also appearing for the first time on Broadway and the USA ,was the fantastic Carmen Miranda. Also in the cast was a young dancer by the name of Gower Champion who also went on to bigger and better things. The program is illustrated with nice blue tinted portraits of the above mentioned +short bios and also is illustrated with chesecake photos of the many Broadway babes who appeared in the show. The program's covers are illustrated with terrific good girl art printed in red and blue, and the downside of all this is that there is a small damp stain to the top corner of the program that is lightly to the top corners of the pages, there is also a few small creases to the back cover, but all in all this is still a vg. copy of a rare and wonderful program.
