11" X 14" Filmed in Tennessee and Arkansas and chronicling the troubled quest of a sharecropper, Zeke Johnson (Haynes), and his relationship with the seductive Chick (McKinney), Hallelujah was one of the first all-black films by a major studio. It was intended for a general audience and was considered so risky a venture by MGM that they required King Vidor to invest his own salary in the production. Vidor expressed an interest in "showing the Southern Negro as he is"[1] and attempted to present a relatively non-stereotyped view of African-American life. One card VF with light handling smudges and printing flaw. One card VG/F with significant handling smudges, tear in upper margin into artwork, and corner crease.

Condition

All cards are in unrestored condition and have been graded on a 10 point scale from Poor to Mint. Grading and conditions reports have been provided as a service for those bidders who are unable to preview said cards in person. Grading is a subjective art and a matter of opinion, and does not constitute any warranty expressed or implied. Grades and conditions have been used to describe significant issues that would be pertinent to bidders who cannot view the items in person, they are by no means a complete catalog of all or every "nick, bump, and bruise". Bidders who will be unable to view the cards in person are encouraged to inquire with any specific condition questions and or concerns. Additional photos and descriptions of specific condition issues will be available upon request up until the day before the auction. Any bid placed at auction means that you have read and accept these guidelines.
