Top Hat Fred
The 1935 musical was among the most popular of its era

The piece headlined an LA auction held in collaboration with TCM titled Picture Perfect: the Art of Movie Posters on July 20.

Bonhams explained the film's appeal: "Top Hat is exemplary of the stylish costumes, elaborate sets, and brilliant dance numbers that characterized Astaire and Rogers' nine films for RKO.

"Additionally, several of the songs written for the film by Irving Berlin are still standards today, including 'Top Hat', 'White Tie and Tails' and 'Cheek to Cheek'."
