Description

    One Night in the Tropics (Universal, 1940). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    What began as a typical Universal programmer, cast with reliable stock players, became a significant film in the history of screen comedy, as it was the first feature film appearance of legendary funnymen Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, who had previously gained fame on radio. When the film was reissued in 1950, about 20 minutes were cut from the running time to give A&C proportionally more screen time. Offered here is a lovely original release Universal near mint/mint set of lobby cards for the film. Only one card features the famous comedy duo but what a rare card it is to find! Also included in this lot is the brown paper bag the cards were distributed in. Near Mint/Mint.
