    Description

    The Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939). Color Glos Photo Title Card (8" X 10").
    Fans of this perennial Hollywood favorite are in for an overwhelmingly rare treat, as this lot includes an almost never seen color glos photo title card prominently featuring the film's stars. Even more exciting, there are two other lots of three photos each, from the rare set of eight color-glos photo lobbies, that are being offered in this auction. They too are in great condition. Unquestionably the best adaptation of L. Frank Baum's children's fantasy, MGM created a grand musical version of Oz in 1939. Judy Garland is Dorothy, an orphan unhappy with her drab, monochromatic life on a Kansas farm. In what became every child's ultimate fantasy adventure, she finds herself traveling "over the rainbow" to the Technicolor land of Oz to join The Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr), the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), and the Tin Man (Jack Haley) on an unforgettable quest. This photo title card is in almost perfect condition, with just a small spot in the top border and corner bumps. We are also offering in the following two lots, six more of these very rare photos. Very Fine.
