    Good afternoon everyone,
    I have always admired older movie Lobby cards just never got around to buying any until this week when I came across a huge pile of them in a Mexican second hand book store. The price was right so I picked through them and bought some American classic movies. The lobby cards are in Spanish but the illustrations are eye catching and I believe will look nice framed.
    Pictured above are 4 different lobby cards from the 1949 movie Mighty Joe Young that would have been displayed in Mexican theaters to promote the movie with some small pinholes.

    History:

    Mighty Joe Young (a.k.a. Mr. Joseph Young of Africa and The Great Joe Young) is a 1949 American black-and-white fantasy film from RKO Radio Pictures made by the same creative team responsible for King Kong (1933). Produced by Merian C. Cooper, who wrote the story, and Ruth Rose who wrote the screenplay, the film was directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and stars Robert Armstrong (who appears in both films), Terry Moore, and Ben Johnson in his first credited screen role.

    Mighty Joe Young tells the story of a young woman, Jill Young,( Terry Moore ) living on her father's ranch in Africa, who has raised the title character, a giant gorilla, from an infant and years later brings him to Hollywood seeking her fortune so she can save the family homestead.

      OMG! I saw that in the day!!! It was a really interesting movie for a kid. My dad took me to see it. I am not so sure it was his type of movie. Afterwards, we got A peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at a counter in a Walgreens , or some drug- store--Funny what a kid remembers! I WISH I COULD GO BACK IN TIME AND REPEAT THAT DAY---TOMORROW! (ooops, excuse caps!)
      The movie poster is exciting!! So vivid!! Great buy~

      I believe they will make a nice display with some of the Tarzan ones I bought Phil.

      Very much like King Kong Roy only smaller 12 feet tall weighing 2000 pounds. King Kong was like 18 feet tall and heavier.

      Hi Lois, this is great to hear you remember going to this movie with your father and that it was such a special day for you. Even if it was not his kind of movie he knew how excited you were wanting to see the movie and he made it all happen!!

      Thank you Rick Merian Cooper was the man when it came to producing the great classic King Kong and Mighty Joe Young movies. I really like the art work on these lobby cards.
