    Description

    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (Columbia, 1939). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    The two most popular lobby cards, the title card and the portrait card, from one of America's favorite movies! James Stewart's portrayal of the naive freshman senator, Jefferson Smith, charmed audiences, won him the first of his five Academy Award nominations, and catapulted Stewart to stardom. Though he played many memorable characters in his nearly six decades as an actor, 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. The title card has pinholes in the field, and slight edge wear. There is a small tear at the top border with paper tape on the reverse. The portrait card has surface abrasions and a small tear on the right border. These highly desirable cards capture the essence of the Stewart charm and would be a fine addition to any collection. Very Fine-.
