8 Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Lobby Cards (LCs; measure 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff, the 1949 Charles Barton screwball horror comedy ("More Ghoulish glee... Than when they met Frankenstein!"; "Help") starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello (Abbott and Costello), Boris Karloff, Lenore Aubert, and Gar Moore. Note that this movie was originally titled "Easy Does It", and it was intended to be a Bob Hope comedy! However, the movie "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" had just come out and was a huge hit, and Universal reworked the script for Abbott & Costello, and changed the title to "Abbott and Costello Meet the Killers"! In that script, the lead villain was a FEMALE character named "Madame Switzer"! Five days before shooting began, Boris Karloff was hired, and the character became a swami, and the title of the movie was changed yet again, to include Boris Karloff's name!

Important Added Info: Note that this set, and 24 others (which are each in their own auction) come to us from a collector who started collecting DECADES ago, and at that time he was looking to acquire every Abbott and Costello lobby card! We are offering 25 complete and incomplete Abbott and Costello sets from his collection in 25 separate auctions. For those who like Abbott and Costello (and who doesn't?) this is a great opportunity to buy lobby cards from many of their movies!

Condition: good to very good. The title card has pinholes around the edges and tiny pairs of staple holes at center in "BORIS". There is a small blank border tear at upper right that has been repaired with conservation tape from the back and there are some creases scattered in various areas. Card #2 has pinholes around the edges, a tear at lower right and some smudges and light scuff marks within the image. Card #3 has pinholes and scuff marks in a few portions of the card. Card #4 has tears at upper center and upper right and card #7 has surface paper loss in each corner from rough removal of tape. Card #8 has a few tiny dot stains at lower right and card #5 is in pretty nice condition. Otherwise, the cards are generally in pretty nice condition and please see our super-sized images and read our condition description to get a good sense of the condition of the individual cards in this great complete set prior to placing a bid.
