    Description

    The War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953). Set of 4 Reproduction Lobby Cards (11" X 14"). 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 following films; the alien war-ships from "The War of the Worlds," the crab monster from "Attack of the Crab Monsters," the giant ant from "Them" and James Arness in full makeup from "The Thing From Another World." These cards have fantastic color and the images are what collectors dreamed of. These cards are all in near mint condition. Near Mint/Mint.
