9 Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Photolobbies (11x14; LCs; measures 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

The Merry Widow, the 1952 Curtis Bernhardt romantic musical ("MGM presents the saucy NEW musical!"; "Based on the operetta written by composer Franz Lehar and authors Victor Leon & Leo Stein") starring Lana Turner (in the title role "as The Merry Widow"), Fernando Lamas, Una Merkel, Richard Haydn, Thomas Gomez, John Abbott, and Marcel Dalio. Note that this movie was a remake of the 1934 Ernst Lubitsch movie starring Jeanette MacDonald and Maurice Chevalier.
NOTE: Click on linked names to see a biography.
Important Added Info: Note that on this classic movie, and on several other major releases of the 1950s, MGM issued two entirely different sets of lobby cards! One set was the kind that is regularly seen. The other kind was a "photolobby" set with glossier color scenes from the movie, most often entirely different from the other set, and sometimes the photolobbies were black and white photos that had been hand-colored prior to production. The photolobbies are at least as rare as the regular lobby cards! Note that in the 1930s and 1940s, MGM issued yet a third kind of color 11" x 14", called a "color glos" 11" x 14", but these were on a photo paper, whereas the 1950s photolobbies are on regular lobby card-like stock.

Condition: good to very good. Two of the cards have some surface paper loss from rough removal of tape at upper center. The one with the close up of Lamas and Turner has a small tear in the left edge. Other than a few light creases, they are in pretty nice condition.
