The Asphalt Jungle, 1950
Original Vintage Title Lobby Card (11x14")
Starring Marilyn Monroe

 

In 1950 a relative unknown actress names Marilyn Monroe appeared in one of her first films, uncredited.   The film was “Asphalt Jungle”.  But, the 1954 rerelease took full advantage of Marilyn's astronomic fame with movie poster headlines, "this is the picture that first brought fame to Marilyn Monroe."

That unknown actress would become a Sex Goddess Superstar and MGM would capitalize on their new major asset by re-releasing Asphalt Jungle in the theaters nationwide.

This time they featured Marilyn more prominently in the movie poster promotions such as including her on more of the lobby cards.  This is one of those  coveted 1954 lobby cards featuring their most famous Movie Star

*Note:  This is a different lobby card that never appeared in the 1950 lobby cards.
