Description

    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (Columbia, 1939). CGC Graded Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    Always a popular title, fans of Frank Capra's famous comedy have the opportunity to own a full set of lobby cards from the film, the first complete set Heritage has ever offered. James Stewart would win the hearts of audiences and score one of his five Academy Award nominations playing a naive freshman senator, a role that also secured his place in the pantheon of Hollywood greats. Though he played many memorable characters during his fifty year-plus career, it is Senator Jefferson Smith, perhaps next only to It's a Wonderful Life's George Bailey, with which Stewart is most identified. Co-star Jean Arthur, who had also teamed with Stewart the previous year in You Can't Take it with You, has been called "the quintessential comedic leading lady" by film historian Robert Osborne. These cards are in great condition, CGC graded with one at 9, two at 8.5, four at 8, and one at 7.5. This gives the lot an overall grade of 8.0/Very Fine.
