Original Italian lobby cards set of MACISTE - AVENGER OF THE MAYANS (1965) starring Kirk Morris. Craziest lobby cards set I've ever seen. The set is nearly made of photos and scenes from other movies, except for card #8 which is from the movie itself. Cards #1 and #2 show scenes from SLAVE OF ROME (1961) with Rossana Podesta and Mario Petri; Card #3 shows a scene from THE AVENGER (1962) with a scene with Kirk from COLOSSUS & THE HEADHUNTERS (1963) which is part of this movie...I know, confusing; Card #4 has Lang Jeffries (!!!) on it, in Roman uniform no less, and a scene from HEADHUNTERS as well. Card #5 is a scene from a Gordon Scott film, HERO OF BABYLON (1963); Card #6 shows a scene from HEADHUNTERS again but the muscular man is a composite of Kirk Morris' head and Mark Forest's body, from HERCULES AGAINST THE SONS OF THE SUN (1964). Card #6 is Ed Fury from URSUS IN THE LAND OF FIRE (1963). And as I already mentioned, the last card is the only card which shows a scene and actors from MACISTE - AVENGER OF THE MAYANS including Kirk. Really bizarre. There must be some sort of back story to this to explain this oddity. I want to buy it!

Mexican lobby cards often pull the same trick...lots of scenes from movies other than the one being touted.
