Description

    Tobor the Great (Republic, 1954). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    This popular 1950s sci-fi drama is the story of a boy (Billy Chapin) who befriends his grandfather's robot, Tobor, designed for the space program, who has very real emotions. When the communists attempt to steal Tobor and change its programing for evil, little Brian and the space scientists (Charles Drake and Taylor Holmes) come to the rescue. Child star Chapin was soon to star in the top film noir The Night of the Hunter, the following year. The sensational title card has a dust shadow and small tear at the bottom right, four cards have pinholes, one has a corner chip and small edge tear, and all have light smudges in one border. Also included with the full set of cards is an additional, handmade silk screened title card. This is a fun set of images you do not want to miss. From the collection of Wade Williams. Fine/Very Fine.
