    Description

    Cleopatra (20th Century Fox, 1963). Overall: Very Fine+. Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14") Pink Style. Drama.
    Due to the potentially controversial nature of the affair Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had while making the movie, two sets of lobby cards with different color borders were originally printed for Cleopatra. The blue set focuses slightly more on Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton as a couple, while the pink set (offered in this lot) focuses more on the grandeur of the movie by replacing character-focused images with wide shots of the set, and using an alternate pose for one image that spaces Taylor and Burton farther apart. Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Rex Harrison, Roddy McDowall, Pamela Brown, Hume Cronyn, Cesare Danova, Martin Landau, Carroll O'Connor, Jean Marsh, George Cole, Kenneth Haigh, and Andrew Keir. Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Unrestored lobby cards with bright color and clean overall appearances. They may have general signs of use, such as very light edge wear, a few minor surface scuffs, or faint and unobtrusive smudges and stains. One card has a small strip of masking tape in the top border, and another card has a strip of masking tape on the verso with tape stain bleedthrough.
