1937 The Three Stooges Grips, Grunts & Groans Lobby Card

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $5,036

Lobby card from the 1937 Three Stooges short Grips, Grunts & Groans. In this film, the Stooges' twentieth short for Columbia, Curly had to impersonate a professional wrestler to help extricate the boys from trouble. All paper from 1930s Stooges films are rare and this example is no exception. This is the first lobby card from this film that we can recall seeing at public auction. The card (14 x 11 inches) displays a corner chip in the upper left that has been addressed by the application of a piece of cardboard on the reverse (giving the appearance of a squared corner). A very slight area of triangular toning affects the other three corners that is most likely the result of the card having once been mounted with photo corners. A tiny pinhole is evident on the top border. In Very Good condition overall, but Excellent in appearance. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,036
