Idle Roomers, 1944
Original Vintage Title Card Movie Poster
Starring The Three Stooges: Moe, Curly, Larry
Very rare original piece of Stooges History. This original 1944 Columbia Short lobby card is a rare find and has gorgeous artwork and graphics. One of the best we have ever seen in 35 years collecting. It could be decades before you ever see one of these again. As seasoned Stooges Collectors know, "Curly era" lobby cards (particularly Title Cards) are very rare and extremely desirable, many selling into the tens of thousand$$ In excellent unrestored condition! We could go on and on about this incredible find, but the enlargeable image above says it all!
Idle Roomers (Columbia, 1944). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). The Stooges are bellhops at a hotel, where a vaudeville couple are staying who bring with them a carnival attraction called Lupe the Wolf Man. The beast is tame, unless it hears music, which makes him go berserk. The Stooges don't know this, until Curly plays the trombone and mayhem begins. This short was the debut of Christine McIntyre in the Stooge shorts. Any Stooge card with Curly is hard to find at this time much less a Title Card. Excellent condition.
Note: The back of the card has a faint impression of the Title Card for the 1944 Horror classic "The Ghost That Walks Alone". This was evidently due to the Stooges lobby card being printed with the "Idle Roomers" printing plate on top and "The Ghost That Walks Alone" printing plate on the bottom. Since this is the ONLY "Idle Roomers" title card to ever appear on the market it is not possible to know if this was a rare production flaw or an intentional design so the card could also be used for "The Ghost That Walks Alone".. The latter is unlikely since the print is faint on the reverse. But, either way a pretty awesome and extremely scarce anomaly.. Also, the print on the reverse is not visible at all from the front, NO Bleed though.. * See enlargeable images above and below
