1953 The War of the Worlds Complete Lobby-Card Set

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $600

Complete set of eight lobby cards (14 x 11 inches) from the 1953 Paramount Pictures release The War of the Worlds. This film, which was loosely based on the famous H. G. Wells novel of the same name, is considered one of the most memorable of all 1950s science-fiction films. Both a critical and box-office success, it was later nominated for three Academy Awards, winning in the category Special Effects. The cards display a number of minor flaws consistent with their age and former use (nearly all of which affect the border areas), including, but not limited to, tack/staple holes and minor tears/repairs. Conditions range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt, averaging Ex. Total: 8 lobby cards. SOLD FOR $600
