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.

*"Wow, those last three feature some really serious faces."* - smileys

 

Yep.

But isn't it nice that Lyle Talbot gets some of that "face time" on two of the cards? He seldom appears in artwork.

More Lyle Talbot! Love that crazy *Colleen* card. Hugh Herbert's expression is priceless. But *Frisco Jenny* and *House on 56th Street* are my favorites so far. Thanks.

Sorry to disappoint ya but all your hoping for Nat will be for naught. The few remaining cards to be posted only feature the leads - if even them.

 

*"But Frisco Jenny and House on 56th Street are my favorites so far."* - smileys

 

I like *Frisco Jenny* too. Has TCM done a "Ruth Chatterton" event lately, if ever?

It's interesting that this foreign release of a biographical film makes no mention of the subject, maybe because Eddie Duchin wasn't a film star and therefore not as well-known abroad? Anyway, the art is ultra-romantic. Moreso on the poster itself than in the original art, but it looks like they're having an actual "roll in the hay".

I don't know.

 

It is not that rare to emphisize a romance over the historical/biographical aspects of a film. But promoting *Going My Way* in this way goes a bit too far.

How right you are. It looks like they recycled a picture of Bing and Marjorie Reynolds at the piano from "Holiday Inn". That's not even close to a clerical collar.

*"That's not even close to a clerical collar."*

 

Ain't it the truth. And it is ITALIAN! It's not as if the country would have an aversion to stories about priests.

 

The best is the re-naming of *Big Jim McLain* for the Italian audience.

From what I can tell, the story had nothing at all to do with the subject matter of its Italian title. (The US movie was big on being "anti-communist" which probably didn't go over well in Italy. The Communists were pretty active and accepted in post-war Italy.)

This is really making me giggle. Every time I use the data base here I see alternate titles listed for movies and I always wonder: Who would call it THAT? Now I know.
