Another great made in Japan toy featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com: a "Remote Control Frankie The Roller Skating Monkey", 1950s, Alps, Japan; 12", fabric over tin. So wish we hadn't missed out on this one...
And so if you have serious stuff, SeriousToyz has serious bidders! For more info, visit www.serioustoyz.com
Frankie's followed by a beautiful and highly stylized 1932 promo ad for Strange Interlude starring Norma Shearer and Clarke Gable. The film in based on the play by Eugene O'Neill. Click on the photos and enjoy.
