    Description

    Boys Town (MGM, 1938). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    In one of his most memorable roles, Spencer Tracy plays Father Flanagan, the Catholic Priest who made the establishment of Boys Town his life's work. Mickey Rooney co-stars as Whitey Marsh, a hoodlum who becomes a valued member of the community thanks to Flanagan's tough influence. Nominated for four Academy Awards, the movie won two, including a Best Actor statue for Tracy. Offered here is a great set of lobby cards for this well-beloved film. The title card shows some surface paper loss, one card has some light dust shadowing, three cards plus the title card have pinholes, and all the cards show some minor edge wear, but overall the set is extremely clean and presentable. You know you want this one. Very Good/Fine.
