Eddie Cantor Ad

by Nicholas Sammond

This ad for an Eddie Cantor musical demonstrates the intermedial status of blackface minstrelsy in the 1920s. Cantor, who got his start on the vaudeville stage, became a major star in the Ziegfield Follies, and a friend and co-worker with black blackface minstrel Bert Williams.
