Original U.S. Roadshow Lobby Card Set Nine Individual 11x14 Color Lobby Cards Fine to Fine Plus Condition

Original 20th Century-Fox Roadshow Lobby Card Set for the Robert Wise musical masterpiece, THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965) starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, and Richard Haydn. Julie Andrews is believable and unforgettable as the nun who leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess of the family of a naval officer widower. Great songs and music, interesting characters, superb direction, and an inspired screenplay all combine to make this one of the American Cinema's best loved and just plain great musicals. And while some people complain that the tone is too sweet, certainly the final act with the introduction of the Nazis adds a new sense of fear and drama. The audience loves the fact that the Von Trapp family is able to outwit history's ultimate villains. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Actress for Andrews, the film won five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director to Wise. This is the original lobby card set for the 70mm roadshow attraction. This roadshow set is distinguished from the normal set because it has a title card with the famous Howard Terpning Art. It is this card which we feel makes this set so appealing. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this set of lobby cards is original to the very first release of the film in the United States. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
