    Description

    The Big Show (Republic, 1937). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14").
    Gene Autry plays a Hollywood stunt man who gets sent to Texas for the Nation Exposition, impersonating the actor he usually stands in for. Of course, all sorts of hullabaloo ensues! A highly entertaining film with lots of location filming at Dallas' Fair Park. The big selling point of these superb and clean seven cards, however, isn't Autry. Instead, it's the card showing a woman dancing up front with a gentleman standing in the back row left holding a guitar. That man is none other than Roy Rogers, in only his second film appearance, strumming along as one of the Sons of the Pioneers. The cards, graded by CGC, are as follows; title card 8.5, Roy Rogers card 9.4, one card 7.5, two cards 9.0, and two cards 9.4. The lot also includes the original brown paper sleeve in which the set was distributed. Overall Very Fine/Near Mint.
