Universal Pictures Silent Lobby Card (11x14). Rare. Very Fine Condition.

Original Universal Pictures Scene Lobby Card (11x14) for the Melvin Brown silent comedy, HER BIG NIGHT (1926) starring Laura La Plante, Einar Hanson, and Zasu Pitts. The synopsis of HER BIG NIGHT on the American Film Insititute's website gives a great overview of the film: "Tom Barrett, a motion picture press agent, noting Frances Norcross' resemblance to film star Daphne Dix, offers her passes to the star's personal appearance. While waiting for her fiance, Johnny Young, Frances is offered $1,000 to impersonate Daphne and successfully appears in her place, assuaging the fears of Myers, a producer, who knows Daphne is with millionaire Harmon on a yacht. Reporter J. Q. Adams has his suspicions aroused and sends a cub reporter to impersonate Daphne's husband. At Daphne's apartment, Adams arrives and presses Barrett for an interview with the star. Frances is confronted by the reporter and manages to bluff her way; Harmon arrives to ask forgiveness, and he is followed by his wife, then Johnny, both demanding explanations. Frances exchanges places with the real Daphne, and, after she explains, all ends happily." The insouciant Laura La Plante is shown on the card. The great Zasu Pitts is shown standing behind the counter. Rare. Very fine condition.
