ACE IN THE HOLE (1951)

Vintage original full 11 x 14” (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, U. S. Kirk Douglas, Jan Sterling, dir: Billy Wilder; Paramount. This extraordinarily bleak film noir is one of Wilder’s most bitter films. The original posters for the film are not really very interesting, and this lobby set did a much better job of representing the film. These lobby cards are scarce, and it is genuinely rare to find a complete original set. Especially since, a few months into the film’s release, Paramount changed the title to THE BIG CARNIVAL, making cards with the original title especially elusive.
