Description

    The Wizard of Oz (MGM, R-1949). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14").
    Featured in this lot are two fantastic cards, #4 and #6, from the 1949 re-release of The Wizard of Oz . Makeup was a problem on the set of the film, and Ray Bolger, Jack Haley and Bert Lahr had to eat lunch separately to avoid upsetting diners in the MGM lunchroom. Lahr had to take his makeup off or restrict himself to soup and milkshakes. The #6 card features a wonderful shot of Bolger, Haley, Lahr and Judy Garland. The #4 card is the only one from this reissue set to picture Frank Morgan as the Wizard other than the title card. Signs of handling include pinholes in the corners, smudging in the bottom border, a tear in the top border, and a top right corner bend (#4), and smudging, two small tears into the background with tape on the verso, and a streak in Dorothy's wrist (#6). Fine/Very Fine.
