Fats Domino signs a color 27x41 movie poster for the movie Shake, Rattle and Rock!
Poster signed: "Fats Domino". Color, 27x41. Movie poster for Shake, Rattle and Rock! The 1957 rock musical was a showcase for four top rock and roll talents of the 1950s. Fats Domino headed the cast as himself, performing "I'm in Love Again", "Ain't it a Shame" and "Honey Chile". Joe Turner, Tommy Charles and Annita Ray also sang their hits. In the film, four older adults played by screen veterans Douglass Dumbrille, Margaret Dumont, Raymond Hatton and Percy Helton try to impose a ban on rock and roll. A television producer played by pre-Mannix Mike Connors does his best to convince the "squares" that the new musical style is harmless fun. Hailing from jazz country, Antoine "Fats" Domino (born in 1928) began recording New Orleans style piano with the song "The Fat Man" in 1949. Nicknamed "Fats" when he was ten by bandleader Bill Diamond, the young musician became a rhythm and blues hit artist in 1952 with "Goin' Home." Three years later, Domino crossed over to the burgeoning new sound, rock 'n' roll. "Ain't That a Shame" (1955) led the succession of million-seller hits over the next five years. From 1955-1963, Domino had 35 Top 40 hits. These songs, many of which were co-written by Domino, included "I'm In Love Again", "Blueberry Hill", "Blue Monday", "I'm Walkin'", "Whole Lotta Loving" and "Walkin' to New Orleans". With 65 million record sales and 23 gold records to his credit, Fats outsold every Fifties rock 'n' roll pioneer except Elvis Presley. In 1980, Domino appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and throughout that decade he continued to perform in clubs and rock 'n' roll revivals. Domino made news in 2005 when he was rescued from his flooded home in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Nicked at folds. Tape stains at upper and lower left and right blank margins. Staple holes at upper left and right blank margins. Lightly stained at bottom margin and background. Lightly soiled at left edge of background. Overall, fine condition.
