    Description

    The Mysterious Island (MGM, 1929). Lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14").
    Loosely based on the Jules Verne novel of the same name, this part-talking film, shot in early Technicolor, is the earliest adaptation of the famed science fiction tale. Lucien Hubbard, of Wings fame, directs Lionel Barrymore as the good-hearted scientist Count Andre Dakkar, who builds an underground world full of new inventions to bring about world peace. In the Verne novel it is revealed that Dakkar is Captain Nemo's real name. His well laid plans are disrupted by the evil Baron Falon (Montagu Love) who kidnaps Dakkar/Nemo's daughter Sonia (Jacqueline Gadsden) in order to force him to use his devices for war. The island is also inhabited by her fiance, engineer Nicolai Roget (Lloyd Hughes) and little aqua-men who befriend Dakkar and help him to defeat Falon. The cards look great after touchup to pinholes and minor tears in the borders. One card has touchup to small corner chips and interior surface blemishes, and has some faint stains that are still visible. There is one card with a post-restoration corner bend. Fine/Very Fine.
