An Undated (probably 1930s) Re-Release Theatrical Movie Title Lobby Card (LC TC; measures 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

Africa Speaks!, the 1930 Walter Futter jungle safari wild animal documentary ("The strangest romance ever filmed!"; "Thrilling adventure in the unexplored regions of Equatorial Africa"; "Produced by the Colorado African Expedition, Inc.") featuring Paul Hoefler (who was the man who went to Africa, and who wrote a book of the same name about his experiences), Harald Austin, Charles Gemora (as a gorilla), and narrated by Lowell Thomas. Note that this movie was first released by Columbia Pictures in 1930, but was then re-released by Mascot at some point in the 1930s, and then by Sack Amusements in 1942 (no doubt the movie proved popular in small towns, likely because it almost certainly contained the obligatory topless native women, that almost all similar movies contained).

Important Added Info: Note that this movie was initially released by Columbia Pictures in 1930, but then Mascot re-released it in the 1930s. A similar situation exists with "The Blonde Captive". We suspect that when Columbia was a struggling studio in 1930, they released all sorts of exploitation movies like these, but when they achieved great success with the Frank Capra movies and others, they sought to end releasing these kinds of movies! However, it is interesting to note that ANY lobby cards from this movie, original or re-release, are incredibly rare! We have only auctioned one first release scene card and now this re-release title card. Note that we have a scan of both the front and the back of this lobby card, which should greatly help you see what defects it has.

Condition: good to very good. The card was lightly partially creased across the middle. There are some faint smudges and a few pinholes around the edges. Otherwise, the card is in pretty nice condition. Note that this lobby card is completely unrestored and there is not a single piece of tape on either the front or back!
