Yes Sir, Mr. Bones! Movie Poster
National Screen Service Corp.

Large, twenty-seven inch by forty-one inch, movie theater poster for the 1951 film, Yes Sir, Mr. Bones, featuring Freeman "Brother Bones" Davis. Lithographed in U.S.A. Dated: Dec 2, 1953. Marked: R51/422.

About the film
No Hollywood film has ever captured the true ambience of a minstrel show. This low budget film stands alone as the most accurate representation ever produced.

The production features a cast of authentic minstrel performers - a remarkable feat considering the film was released in 1951. The movie includes the only known film footage of legendary minstrel, Emmett Miller. And Brother Bones performs a solid two-and-a-half minutes of whistlin', dancin' and bone rattlin' like no one has ever seen before.

What the Movie is About
This full-length movie features a bevy of authentic "late vaudevillian minstrel performers". Their average age is around 70 years old. The film represents a merger of burlesque, minstrelsy and vaudeville.


The Storyline
A young boy wanders into the Show Boat Rest Inn, a home for old minstrel men. The boy wants to know more about them. The oldsters are more than delighted to oblige. The film flashes back to a
performance from the nostalgic days of riverboat shows...minstrel songs, buck-and-wing dancing, end-man jokes, soft-shoe routines, variety acts - and yes sir, Mister Bones!
