Lobby Cards Set: BEN-HUR (1959)

US lobby cards set of BEN-HUR (1959) starring Charlton Heston: good set but the film is filed with so many stand-out moments that it feels underwhelming. I've been a movie poster collector since I was 14 years old and I have to state that them old MGM lobby cards were not my favourite in terms of quality. But this is a different issue: missing are scenes of the battle at sea, the march into Rome, etc. Very good but could have been so much more. There's another set (of a re-release?) and it has some interesting and different images.

There is a different 1969 reissue set of cards with different scenes. They are color photos rather than the tinted cards from the original release.
