    Description

    The War of the Worlds & Others Lot (Paramount, 1953). Reproduction "Ninth Card" Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14.25" & 11" X 13.75"). Science Fiction.
    Starring Gene Barry, Ann Robinson, Les Tremayne, Robert Cornthwaite, Sandro Giglio, Lewis Martin, Houseley Stevenson Jr., Paul Frees, William Phipps, Vernon Rich, Henry Brandon, Jack Kruschen, Cedric Hardwicke, Carolyn Jones, Alvy Moore, George Pal, and Walter Sande. Directed by Byron Haskin. During the 1950's, many of the lobby card sets issued by the studios for their horror and science fiction films were created without scenes showing the monster. The studios felt that if the monster were shown, no one would buy a ticket and see the film. You can imagine how disappointing this was for the fans. So, in the late 1980s, a set of cards were produced from several of the seminal sci-fi classics of the fifties called the "ninth" card. The card would display the creature or monster that was not featured at all in the original set. These cards have become collector's items today and sometimes sell for more than the original scenes. Included in this lot are the famous "ninth" cards from The War of the Worlds, 20 Million Miles to Earth (Columbia, 1957), and The Thing From Another World (RKO, 1951). Unrestored reproduction lobby cards with bright colors and clean overall appearances. They may have general signs of use, such as slight edge and fold wear. Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details. Overall Grade: Very Fine+.
