    Description

    Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (RKO, 1948) Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Jim and Muriel Blandings (Cary Grant and Myrna Loy) are tired of being cooped up in a small Manhattan apartment with their two kids and a live-in maid. While looking for houses in the countryside with their lawyer friend Bill Cole (Melvyn Douglas), they come upon a house that is "a piece of American history. Of course, the beautiful sight of the house in their imagination is nothing at all like the reality of what the broken-down wreck really is. When they decide to build anew, complications naturally arise, from locking doors and unreliable workmen to the whimsies of color choice. Grant and Loy are featured on all eight cards of this set, and Douglas is on four. Other than the slightest bit of soiling on three cards and a few tiny corner dings, this is a mint set. Near Mint/Mint.
