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

Project Moonbase, the 1953 Richard Talmadge space science fiction (sci-fi) thriller ("Thrills come rocketing to the screen as science smashes a new frontier!"; "...UP UP UP!... To a new world of adventure"; "They found romance 100,000 miles from earth!"; "Terror strikes in the Unknown Stratosphere!"; "See man-piloted rocket launched from gigantic space ship!"; "Story and Screenplay by Robert Heinlein & Jack Seaman"; set in 1970, it was pretty close to the actual time that men made it to the moon, but this is not so surprising since it was written by the great author Robert Heinlein; note that the movie is an expanded version of the first episode of a TV show that was never produced, called "Ring Around the Moon"; Heinlein was sort of tricked into making this movie, which is far from his best work, and got terrible reviews on its first release; however, the movie is notable for having a female president and a female commander, decades before "Star Trek" did the same in one of its incarnations!) starring Ross Ford, Donna Martell, Hayden Rorke, Larry Johns, and Ernestine Barrier (as Madame President). Note that Hayden Rorke played a general involved in the spaceship program in this movie, and years later, he would again join the space program, this time as a psychiatrist on TV's "I Dream of Jeannie"! Also note that Dick Talmadge was born "Sylvester Alphonse Metz", and he was an acrobat with the Barnum and Bailey Circus. He got a job in Hollywood as a stuntman for Douglas Fairbanks Sr., and then graduated to starring in movies, always performing lots of stunts. He had two acrobat brothers, Otto Metzetti and Victor Metz, who appeared with him in some of his movies.

Important Added Info: Note that this set, and 47 others (which are each in their own auction) come to us from a collector who started collecting DECADES ago! Not only was this a time when you could still find complete sets on titles like these, and with some extra looking, you could still find nice condition sets! This is a rare opportunity to not only purchase many complete sets on titles that are usually found broken up and sold by the card, but also a chance to get a nice condition set (see below for the exact condition of this specific set).

Condition: very good. The cards are in pretty nice condition and they have no tape whatsoever on the front or back, and they never have had any restoration of any kind!
