    Description

    The Women (MGM, 1939). Lobby Card Set of 8 + (2) Reissue Cards (11" X 14").
    George Cukor directs an all female cast in this story of betrayal, revenge, and divorce. Based on Clare Booth Luce's hit play of the same name, the film starred some of the biggest stars of 1930s Hollywood, including Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Ruth Hussey, Virginia Grey, and more. Screenwriter Anita Loos skillfully filled the film with quick witted dialogue, expertly delivered by these accomplished actresses, resulting in a humorous look at the damage women do to each other when it comes to men. This is a very scarce full set of lobby cards for the classic film. Of the eight original cards all but the title card and one scene card has either a paper snipe or printed on the card the tag, "Suitable Only for Adults." Otherwise the cards show general handling use including pinholes, corner wear and one card has a larger tear in the upper border into the title block at the top of the card. That tear has been supported on the verso with paper tape. The two 1947 reissue cards are in very nice condition. Fine+.
