An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Lobby Card (measures 11" x 14") (Learn More)

42nd Street, the classic 1933 Lloyd Bacon New York City Broadway theater stage acting romantic love triangle all-star musical ("14 stars 200 girls"; based on the novel by Bradford Ropes; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; with dances staged by Busby Berkeley) starring Dick Powell, Edward J. Nugent, Ginger Rogers, Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, George Brent, Ruby Keeler, Una Merkel, Guy Kibbee, Margaret La Marr, Donna Mae Roberts, Adele Lacy, Jayne Shaddack, George E. Stone, Ned Sparks, Ruth Eddings, Edna Callahan, Lynn Browning, and Toby Wing. Note that this movie, which may be the first sound movie to use the cliche of the star being injured and an untested newcomer gets her big break as a result, had some of the most risque advertising of any movie ever, with many images of girls wearing the skimpiest of costumes!

Important Added Info:
NOTE: In this case, the #4 in the title of the sale is not the number of the lobby card. Because we are selling more than one lobby card from this movie this week as separate eBay sales, we needed to differentiate the different sales, and we did so by marking them "#1, #2, #3, etc..".

Condition: good. triangular paper loss in the foot of the woman at lower right; large tack hole in the center of the left edge of the image and a similar tack hole in the left of the bottom blank border and another in the top right corner next to the lamp post image; two 1" thin strips of missing paper, one at the top left corner of the image, and the other in the top right corner of the card; light diagonal crease running from slightly right of the center of the top blank border diagonally down through the image going into Keeler's hair and ending in her shoulder; some stains in the left and bottom borders. Obviously, this rare card has real defects, but any talented restorer could certainly repair them, and the card would look wonderful and yet there would only be small amounts of actual paint restoration on the card!
