Lobby Cards set : CLEOPATRA (1963)

US lobby cards set for CLEOPATRA (1963). Distilling the entire 4 hours into 8 lobby cards was an impossible task. There were two sets of lobby cards, known as the blue and the pink sets. The cards in the pink set were almost identical except for 3 cards. I included 2 more with the blue set. I like it and it does give an impression of the colorful film but the film is too expansive and a lobby card set could never perfectly capture the scope of he film. Good but not great.

There is also a glossy color 9 card set of lobbies for the Roadshow release. The blue set is for international territories and the pink set for domestic U.S. popular priced showings when it was cut down to about three hours.
