    Description

    The Fighting Seabees (Republic, 1944). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    During WWII, the US Navy was in need of construction crews to build military sites and this film documents the formation of special units known as Construction Battalions (C.B's). John Wayne leads the effort and must train the engineers to fight as well as they build. An extremely scarce set to put together, this set of wartime cards shows minor wear in the form of smudging to the white areas. Some of the scenes have pinholes in the corners and some minor crimping and creases as well. The Dennis O'Keefe card is very clean and the John Wayne closeup card has chips in the lower corners and pinholes in the upper corners. Fine+.
