    Description

    Central Airport (Warner Brothers - First National, 1933). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Fantastic aerial footage sets this melodrama apart from it contemporaries. A love triangle develops between pilots in a flying circus. Jill (Sally Eilers) loves Jim (Richard Barthelmess), but he insists that flyers shouldn't marry, so the disappointed Jill marries his younger brother Neil (Tom Brown) instead. The resulting tensions disrupt their lives and careers. John Wayne appears in a bit part as Neil's co-pilot. With eye-popping color, this original lobby card set is in very nice condition. The title card has two small tears and creasing on bottom border. Most of the cards display some dust shadowing and corner dings and some have very tiny tears at the edges. But all cards still maintain great images for a tough to find title. Overall Very Fine/Near Mint.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
