This lot includes the group of Cuban ephemera shown in the corresponding image. This material consists of rare Tropicana Casino color postcards and an illustrated souvenir booklet from the Tropicana in English and Spanish from the 1950s. A Cabaret Guide issued in 1956 described The Tropicana as, "the largest and most beautiful night club in the world. Located on what was once a 36,000-square-meter estate, Tropicana has ample room for two complete sets of stages, table areas and dance floors, in addition to well-tended grounds extending beyond the night club proper. Tall trees rising over the tables and through the roof in some spots lend the proper tropical atmosphere which blends well with the ultra-modern architecture of the night club. Shows include a chorus line of 50 and the dancers often perform on catwalks among the trees. Rhythms and costumes are colorfully native, with voodooism a frequent theme. Top talent is imported from abroad. Minimum at tables is $4.50 per person, but this can be avoided by sitting at central bar which has a good view of both stages."(courtesy of Wikipedia)

Also present in this collection of rare ephemera is a rare original 1950s promotional photo of Benny More (1919 - 1963), Cuba's best jazz musician and singer, and a most unusual still from what appears to be Errol Flynn's last movie, the 1959 film "Cuban Rebel Girls," a film that did nothing to help his troubled career (described by one critic as his "final laughable film").
