Description

    Things to Come (United Artists, 1936). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). H.G. Wells' meditation on the future of the human race was one of the most spectacular films of its day, directed by William Cameron Menzies, with Raymond Massey and Cedric Hardwicke in the leads. Offered here is an incredibly rare title lobby card for this classic film, which seasoned collectors will know does not come up for sale very often. The spectacular artwork is very much in the Alex Raymond style; although we cannot confirm if Raymond is the actual artist, it was around this time that he created the "Captain Blood" poster. The card is in very solid condition, with minor paper scuffs, mostly in the logo area, but also in the margins. There are pinholes in the top corners only, and light corner bumps. "A Mighty Challenge to the World of Today" would be finding another copy of this super-scarce lobby card, so don't miss this opportunity. Very Fine-.
