    20th Century (Columbia, 1934). Jumbo Lobby Cards (2) (14" X 17").
    It's with great pride Heritage offers these two exceedingly rare jumbo lobby cards, which are part of the set of eight presented in the March 2014 Movie Poster Signature Auction. We have previously offered midget window cards, lobby cards and Swedish one sheets for this title, but the jumbo lobby card format is particularly challenging to find. John Barrymore and Carole Lombard deliver award caliber performances in this screwball comedy from director Howard Hawks. Loosely based on the life of producer David Merrick, 20th Century follows the career of Broadway producer Oscar Jaffe (Barrymore) who is at a loss when his rising starlet Lily Garland (Lombard) moves to Hollywood. Huge laughs are had when the two run into each other on a train, the 20th Century of the title, where Jaffe attempts to convince Garland to star in his latest production. Of all his films, Barrymore considered this to be his favorite. Full bleed and printed on a special pebble-finish stock, the jumbo lobby cards have benefited from expert restoration. The enchanting portrait card of Lombard has had 2" of the left border and 1/2" of the right border replaced. The closeup portrait of Lombard and Barrymore has had 2" of the top border and 1" of the bottom border replaced. Careful attention was paid to the restoration of these cards, specifically to match the paper stock for the replacement pieces. Incredible Golden Hollywood collectibles, the jumbo lobby cards now present beautifully. Good+.
