Description

    Captain America (Republic, 1944). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14") Chapter 10 -- "The Avenging Corpse."
    Based on the Timely Comics' character created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, this rough-and-tumble serial starred Dick Purcell as DA Grant Gardner, aka Captain America. Although the serial took some noticeable liberties with the character - Cap is missing the wings on his temples, his trademark shield, and his sidekick, Bucky, for example - this is an exciting Republic chapterplay with all the thrills and excitement fans expect from that studio. Paper from this serial is extremely scarce. Although one sheets do turn up from time to time, lobby cards - especially title cards - are almost nonexistent; this is the very first card from this serial that we've ever been privileged to offer. It has pinholes in the center of the top and bottom borders, a scratch in the upper portion of the image with some minor paper loss, light smudges in the border, paper tape on the reverse, rounded corners, and a top right corner bend, but these slight flaws do nothing to detract from the overwhelming appeal of this rare beauty. Don't delay, bid on this one today! Fine/Very Fine.
