Description

    Things to Come (United Artists, 1936). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). A thrilling adaptation of H. G. Wells's prophetic novel, this is the story of a future Earth, after decades of unceasing war have ravaged civilization, which has been reduced to a state of medieval feudalism, in which tyrannical bosses run their small villages with an iron hand. Everything changes, however, when Wings Over the World, a group of scientists banded together for the common good, appear, and crush the rule of the petty bosses, ushering in a new Golden Age and allowing mankind to finally reach for the stars. An important film in the development of the science fiction genre, paper from this title is scarce and extremely sought after. Offered here is a great scene card, picturing Raymond Massey as John Cabal, a member of Wings Over the World, making his first appearance in the shattered city of Everytown. The card has pinholes, two tears in the bottom border, foxing in the borders, a water stain extending from the top left border about halfway down the side of the card, overall light soiling, creases in the corners and the top border, and scuffing on Massey's chest and legs. You don't need to be able to see into the future to know that this card is going to inspire some spirited bidding. Very Good/Fine.
