An Undated (probably 1960s) Re-Release Vintage Theatrical Movie Title Lobby Card (LC TC; measures 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

Edge of the City (released in other English-speaking countries as "A Man Is Ten Feet Tall"), the 1957 Martin Ritt New York City race relations suspense thriller ("From the edge of your seat you'll see Edge of the City") starring John Cassavetes, Sidney Poitier, Jack Warden, Kathleen Maguire, and Ruby Dee

Important Added Info: Note that this lobby card is undated, but we have sold scene cards from this same international re-release, and we were certain that they are from the late 1960s. This re-release title card confirms that, because it credits the stars with movies that they made in the middle 1960s, so obviously, it dates from after that time! Note that this is a poster or lobby card that was printed by MGM for a European movie that they distributed in the U.S.. Somewhere in the early 1960s, MGM apparently made a huge "trade" deal with European movie distributors. From the early 1960s to the late 1960s, MGM released 100 or more non-U.S. movies in the U.S. under the MGM logo (some dating back to the 1950s), and in return, they apparently gave 100 or more MGM movies (from the 1950s and early 1960s) to those European distributors to release in Europe. All of the posters from both sets of releases have a very similar type of somewhat garish, very colorful artwork, and some have an MGM logo that is different from than on other MGM movies of the same time period, which makes it likely that those (with different logos) are from re-releases. None of these posters (except for the very first few of them) have any dates on them. Over the years, I have seen many of these posters (from both types) sold as first release, but, as stated above, some of these are mid to late 1960s re-releases, and the ones from U.S. movies are "international" posters (or lobby cards) that were used in non-U.S. countries.

Condition: good to very good. The lobby card was overprinted with a black arrow across the lower right (this was not done to cover anything, but rather apparently to draw attention to the title). We have seen other examples of this card that do not have this overprinting. Note that this lobby card is completely unrestored and there is not a single piece of tape on either the front or back!
