    Description

    Dark Sands (Record Pictures, 1938). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14").
    This WWI epic stars the highly acclaimed singer and actor Paul Robeson, as Jericho Jackson, a colonel and doctor who heroically saves six men aboard his ship, but accidentally kills his sergeant. After he is found guilty during a court martial, Jackson goes AWOL, with the aid of Captain Mack (Henry Wilcoxon), who is then imprisoned. Jackson makes it to Morocco and becomes the chief of an African tribe, until Mack comes looking for revenge. Robeson's incredible voice is used to great effect in two original songs written for the film. The 1937 British original release title for this film is Jericho; when it was released in the U.S., the title was changed to Dark Sands. The title card has a corner bend and a tear in the top right corner, rounded corners, and a nick in the bottom border. All of the cards have a staple hole in the image, corner bends, a chip, and a few tears. These great cards are a rare and exciting find. Fine.
