Shane Original Vintage Lobby Card Movie Poster


Shane, 1953
Original Vintage Lobby Card Movie Poster

Starring Alan Ladd, Jack Palance


One of my top 5 movies of all time.  I've watched "Shane" maybe 20 times and will watch it another ten.  The first time we have acquired the original lobby cards.  We had bid on a set a few years ago but it sold for $4200.  
Just acquired five of the original eight lobby cards.  They have some condition issues primarily on the borders such as several pinholes and some torn away border corner tips on a couple.  This card has the top and bottom left border corner torn and several pinholes.  But the image areas remains mostly untouched and beautiful.  When it is matted and framed the border issues will be invisible. And of course this is the iconic unforgettable scene that is particularity "cold" enough to make you shiver.   Jack Palance may be the most vile villain of the classic western genre long before computers had to do most of the work and special effects.

Shane (Paramount, 1953). Lobby Card  (11" X 14").
George Stevens directed this classic Western that stars Alan Ladd, who's fighting for the rights of the common man. Jack Palance portrays a nasty, sadistic killer who takes on Shane in a duel. This iconic picture has become one of the most beloved movies of the genre.

Alan Ladd turns in a stellar performance as one of the greatest of all Western icons, the reluctant gunslinger Shane, who arrives in town in the midst of a standoff between settlers and a cattle baron with his hired guns. Unable to stay out of the fight, Shane defends his new friends Joe Starrett (Van Heflin), his wife Marian (Jean Arthur), and their son Joey, played by the wide-eyed Brandon De Wilde. Directed by George Stevens and filmed in the wide landscape of Wyoming and the Grand Tetons, this film is epic in every sense.   Featuring stand out performances by Jean Arthur, Brandon DeWilde and Jack Palance, as well as gorgeous cinematography, the film is nothing shy of a Western epic. 

One of the all-time great Westerns, and an interesting experiment in that the film unfolds largely in "real time," Shane is a favorite of many for its well-drawn characters and beautiful Western landscapes..
