Nothing like a man versus ape illustration to get the blood pumping, right? I'm not sure which Jungle Jim movie this Mexican lobby card is for, but note that Chita gets third-banana billing. Not bad for a chimp.
While the hooded executioner, with his blood-dripping axe, shown in this Mexican lobby card for La Ropa Del Verdugo (Dressed to Kill), is certainly dressed to kill, I don't think Sherlock Holmes needs to worry about him much in this last movie of the series that starred Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Doctor Watson. Nevertheless, this lobby is thrilling to see; from its fear-inducing executioner, to the hanged man, to the vibrant text style and background, it's a fine example how a lobby card can dress up a movie by outright lying. While Holmes faces danger, its nothing as sharp as that axe. But after seeing this card, wouldn't you want to see the movie?
This Mexican lobby card for the Republic Pictures' 12 chapter serial, Flying Disc Man From Mars, has it all. Blasting ray gun, cool space alien suit and rocket, burning cities, fleeing people. This is a costume for Halloween I'd die for.
Hammer's Psycho-inspired entry, Paranoiac, is a good one for Oliver Reed. His smoldering good looks just make him all the more sinister. Note the Universal International stamp on this Mexican lobby card for the movie.
Simple layout yet still a great Mexican lobby card for La Muerte es Puntual (Death is Punctual). Neat placement of all essential elements such as the illustration, the text, and the inset scene keep it clean and direct.
Now that's a hat. Quite a spook house set of elements is showing in this El Charro De Las Calaveras Mexican lobby card: werewolf, bat, headless person, skulls; added a bit randomly but still very effective.The whimsical nature of the headless person's posture softens the scares. This movie is featured in Mexican Monsters on the March by Something Weird Video. (Here's another version)
Sure, the illustration on the right is wonderful but that inset scene is perfect. A stylish Mexican lobby card that's balanced its illustration, movie scene, text, and colors very well, Locos Pelicgrosos is a fine example of Mexican lobby card artistry in high gear.
