ORIGINAL LOBBY CARDS AND STILLS 1930-1959

ORIGINAL LOBBY CARDS, FILM STILLS AND FRONT-OF-HOUSE CARDS 1930-1959.  In addition to original film posters, we also stock a huge range of original lobby cards, film stills and front of house cards. These were originally issued for display in the foyers of cinemas and movie theatres. The majority of our stock comprises British front-of-house cards. These measure 8 x 10 inches and were typically issued in sets of 8. Original lobby cards are one of the longest established collecting catagories.  They often feature the most memorable scenes from the film and are easier to display than their larger cousins, the film poster. Original lobby cards issued between 1930 and 1959 for classic films such as The Wizard of Oz, Key Largo and Lives of a Bengal Lancer are still very affordable compared to the sums asked for the larger posters and offer an inexpensive way to collect original material featuring super images of John Wayne, Jean Harlow, Marlyn Monroe, Cary Grant and other Hollywood favourites.
