    Description

    Under Western Stars (Republic, 1938). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). If you're a Roy Rogers fan - and who isn't? - this is a key title for your collection, as this was Roy's first starring vehicle and the feature film that shot him to the heights of Hollywood fame (ironically, Rogers was paid the even-then paltry sum of $75 per week for this picture). Previously, Rogers had appeared in a handful of movies as a singer/guitar player, but this was his first opportunity to shine on his own. As everyone knows, it was also the birth of a true Western legend. Rogers made almost 100 pictures between this film and his death in 1998, and is, to this day, a beloved star, adored by millions worldwide. Offered here is a wonderful set of lobby cards, featuring Roy Rogers and his erstwhile co-star, Lester "Smiley" Burnette. The title card shows a tape stain in the upper left, pinholes in the upper right, and a small corner bend in the lower left. The other cards in the set are quite attractive, with a few pinholes in each, and some creasing in the bottom border of one card. Overall, this is a very attractive and desirable set from an exceptionally significant film. Fine/Very Fine.
