Green Dolphin Street - Publicity Stills
Here are a few photos taken to help publicize MGM's Green Dolphin Street (1947), starring Lana Turner, Van Heflin, and Donna Reed. Publicity stills were specially-posed photos, usually taken off the set, for purposes of publicity or reference for promotional artwork.
The Black Book - Lobby Card Set
Here is a set of Lobby Cards from Walter Wanger's The Black Book (1949, aka Reign of Terror), starring Robert Cummings. Lobby Cards were 11" x 14" posters that came in sets of 8. As the name implies, they were most often displayed in movie theater lobbies, to advertise current or coming attractions.
