Original MGM Scene Lobby Card (11x14). Rare Marilyn Monroe Card. Fine Plus Condition.

Original MGM Scene Lobby Card (11x14) for the John Huston film-noir classic, THE ASPHALT JUNGLE (1950) starring Sterling Hayden, Sam Jaffe, Louis Calhern, and a young Marilyn Monroe. This is the story of Doc Riedenschneider (Jaffe), who has just been released from prison and seeks financial backing for a million-dollar heist that he has been planning for years. At first the plan seems to be successful, until a host of "little" problems and double crosses causes the whole plot to fall apart. Huston plucked Marilyn from obscurity and catapulted her acting career with this role of the naive, voluptuous mistress. Harold Rosson's exceptional cinematography and Miklos Rozsa's emotional score further enhance this crime masterpiece. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards including: Best Supporting Actor for Jaffe; Best Cinematography for Rosson; Best Director for Huston; and Best Screenplay for Ben Maddow and Huston. This is a very rare scene card with Monroe. The card is in fine plus condition with some minor border tears, which have been repaired with archival repair tissue. One of the most difficult to find Monroe lobby cards.
