DescriptionMy Man Godfrey (Universal, 1936). Fine+. Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14").
A favorite among several "All Time Greatest Comedy" lists, this charming story of a screwball prank-gone-wrong features stellar performances by leads William Powell and Carole Lombard, as well as supporting actors Mischa Auer and Alice Brady. All together, they create a kind of nutty chemistry perfect for this dizzy comedy. In fact, they were nominated for Academy Awards in all four acting categories, a first in Oscar history, alongside Gregory La Cava for Best Director and screenwriters Eric Hatch and Morrie Ryskind for Best Writing. The cards show such indications of use as light edge wear, pinholes, mild creases, and thin surface scuffs. The maid card has a vertical creases on the right side, small tears, some stains, as well as a few slight bits of touchup in the interior. The scene card with Powell and Lombard has faint staining along the right edge, mild toning, in addition to a very minor tear braced with archival tape on the verso. Fine+.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
