RKO Original Scene Lobby Card (11x14) Very Fine Condition

Original RKO PIctures Scene Lobby Card (11x14) in very fine condition for the epic film THE CONQUEROR (1956) starring John Wayne, Susan Hayward, Pedro Armendariz, Agnes Moorehead, Thomas Gomez, John Hoyt, and William Conrad. Produced by the enigmatic billionaire Howard Hughes, this movie is one of the outlier movies in John Wayne's career. The film was directed by Dick Powell. It's a biographical film about Temujin, aka Genghis Khan. The movie made lots of money, but was a critical disaster. It's regarded as one of the worst films of the 1950s, and Wayne's role as the Mongol warrior one of the worst casting moments ever. This card captures a positively funny moment in the film where Hayward is riding along in her litter. Wayne rides up to talk to her, she smarts off to him and he rips the top of her already scanty dress off. No kidding. Making the movie had tragic consequences for almost all involved in the production. The film was made at a location in Utah downwind from a famous atomic bomb testsite. It is well reported that an inordinate number of cast members died of cancer as a result of exposure to radiation incurred while making the picture. There is more on this subject at wikipedia for those interested. The mid-1950s was the era of historical biopics, and this one, while expensive, was dull. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this scene lobby card is an authentic lobby card from this movie. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
