    Description

    The Idle Rich (MGM, 1929). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). In a twist on the typical "haves vs. the have-nots" plot line, Conrad Nagel, as a wealthy business man, moves in with his wife's "lower class" family just to prove he is humble, and he falls into all sorts of comedic situations. These sorts of stories were the rage just prior to "Black Tuesday" and The Wall Street crash when the "Idle Rich" would become a thing of the past. MGM really hyped the advent of sound in movies by heralding this film as an "All-Talking Picture." All of the cards have between two and three pinholes in the center and several show very minor silverfish nibbling along the edges. The portrait card has a slight scratch on Nagel's eye and another scene has a hole in Nagel's suit coat. Fine.
