A Collection of Warner Bros. "Title Lobby Cards" with Unique and/or Exceptional Artwork

 

Warner Bros. in the mid-1930s created some phenomenal original artwork for use on non-poster materials. Featuring stylish layouts, interesting treatments of text and wonderful star portraits or caricatures, these special pieces are often more interesting than the more popular one-sheet posters. These creations are also a window into the how valuable the studio considered some of these stars and how popular they were with the public in the 1930s.

More disembodied heads for smileys!

 

But, I have to admit, they are used to great advantage in both lobby cards. Very atmospheric!

 

Thanks for sharing them with us!

Glad you are liking what has come so far. But it is far from over yet. There's lots of interesting stuff ahead.

*"Got to love that image of Satan."* - smileys

 

Isn't it awesome? It is definitely one of the best renderings of a tiger that I have ever seen.

 

I wonder if "Satan" starred in any other films?

*"Kyle, those WB title lobby cards are wonderful!"* - filmlover

 

They are definitely a step or two above a typical Lobby Card, aren't they? Thanks for checking them out.

*"You can never go wrong with Brown..."* - smileys

 

Joe E. Brown was treated to some really special artwork in the early to mid-Thirties. He must have been more popular than we can even imagine.

 

*"...and hey, there's legs, too."*

 

You noticed!

I have to appreciate the work in those two, brings back memories of my frustration at the drafting table decades ago. :-)

You're right. There is something "architectural" about both of those title displays. And "solid" - which, thematically, is a very different in idea between the two films.

 

But I didn't know a straight edge and a triangle could be so cumbersome. But French Curves? That I can understand.
