Any silent movie fans in the audience? ...I can't hear you!




Even though Chaplain and Keaton have received more acclaim in retrospect, Harold Lloyd was the most successful silent comedy feature filmmaker in the U.S. during the silent era.

I like lobby cards and movie posters, but they are too big for my collecting tastes. I remember seeing a Superman vs the Mole Men 3 sheet poster and thinking... I like it, but it needs to be in the hands of someone who owns a mansion and has room to display stuff like that.

You have a point about posters, although lobby cards are typically 11" X 14". Even framed they're smaller than the average painting or original published comic art page. Some of my favorite non-comic collectibles are rare first release lobby cards.

One of my favorites is the Henry Brandon signed title card for the classic Republic serial Drums of Fu Manchu...

@CatmanAmerica - That lobby card makes me see Hopalong Cassidy in a whole new (slightly terrifying) light!

The reason he has the middle name "Stage" is because there were two film actors in Hollywood named William Boyd. The actor who was a notorious alcoholic on stage and off wasn't the same actor who portrayed Hopalong Cassidy.

You really oughta locate a copy of this cliffhanger! William Stage Boyd's hamfisted performance on booze has to be seen to be appreciated.

Still too big for my tastes. I'd want complete sets and therefore there's still no room to display them.
Did you ever purchase from the Paper Chase in Atlanta?

Several of my lobby card purchases over the years have been from Earl Blair (aka Captain Bijou). His connection with fandom is long and well respected. Expertise-wise, Earl has extensive knowledge of film and film memorabilia.

Full sets of lobby cards are fine for completists and dedicated memorabilia collectors, but for those collectors focusing on comics and/or original art, the selective acquisition of rare cards ...properly mounted and framed... is a more desirable approach for collecting and display.

To answer your question, I've never had the pleasure of dealing with The Paper Chase out of Atlanta.

The owner had several large warehouse purchases with awesome stuff in the mix. The manager was someone I considered a friend when he was younger, but he went down the wrong path at some point in his life and got into illegal & unethical activities. He eventually took his own life when it all started to catch up to him.

Regardless, that was a place where I could see a Forbidden Planet movie poster or lobby card. I learned a lot about movie posters through them. Adding a linen back was a common trend in the hobby because they are so fragile. I've often wondered if that would ever fall out of favor and be frowned upon.

Not in the antiquities trade. Paper memorabilia/ephemera is regarded as fragile. Anything deemed worthy of preservation is a candidate for professional conservation techniques.

I have a few Lost City lobby cards scored long ago, maybe even from Earl Blair whom I first met at my first comicon ever which was Houston June 17 18 1967 age 15.

Cleaning out my Photobucket storage I came across these obscure images taken of your's truly. No, I'm not quite reduced to posting selfies ...this is all on my spousal unit..., but this is what happens when FANDOM runs amok...

BEER & ALE fandom...




Catman set loose in Barcelona...




MANNUP Collectibles (whoever heard of a dealer with a freakin' slide show presentation)...




There's more, but I'd have to imbibe a lot more beer before postin'em. Hmmm, maybe it's time to go back to the fridge for another brew.

Lobbying for serial lobby cards is a lonely pursuit. Alas, I'm a glutton for punishment! One of the greatest mid-40's serials was MANHUNT of MYSTERY ISLAND with the charming Linda Sterling trying to thwart Roy Bancroft's plans for world conquest as the evil ray-transformed pirate Captain Mephisto. It's a totally ridiculous plot, but lots of fun...

Found this in one of my Photobucket files. Cool booth display at SDCC from around seven years ago. The eight foot Disney licensed Nautilus replica and other actual film props designed by this group...




Shortly after the con I purchased one of the ltd. ed. four foot versions of this beauty.
