This TC is from the 1936 original release of the Universal Picture film, Show Boat. This TC is in Near Mint condition based the grading system in the following paragraph.It is 84 years old and is in super shape. There are no pinholes or rips or cuts or creases. There is no writing on the back.
Overall, this is a very nice, very hard to find 30s card from a classic movie. It is printed with a heavier paper stock that was often used at that time. There was a 1929 version of Show Boat and there would be another in 1951. This version is considered the best of those. It contains the music of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.
It was directed by James Whale. This is the Title lobby card for the original 1936 release of this film. Lobby cards are 11" by 14" and were printed to be shown in the lobbies of movie theaters. My collection is mostly of the Title Card of the 8 lobby cards.
This title card usually gave the film title and the main acting and directing credits as well as an overall scene or view of the film. Usually one or more of the main actors is shown. As far as condition of the individual title cards my grading system is Fair-Excellent-Fine-Near Mint. I add a plus sign if the card is at the top of its class. Example: Excellent + or Fine+.I try to point out any condition variation that is less than really good. Many of these variations would be passed by most buyers and sellers. These lobby cards are mostly over 50 years old and have passed through a number of hands before they reached me.
