PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET (1953) Lobby card
Vintage original 14 x 11″ (35 x 28 cm.) title lobby card, USA. Richard Widmark, Jean Peters, Thelma Ritter, Richard Kiley, dir: Samuel Fuller; Twentieth Century Fox. Early directorial effort from Sam Fuller, with a screenplay by him as well. In this suspenseful story, a pickpocket lifts a message to enemy agents and becomes a target for a Communist spy ring. Fuller made the setting — New York City — a central character in his story, and it was expressionistically photographed by Joseph MacDonald. At one point Betty Grable was set to play the Jean Peter’s role of Candy, and even Marilyn Monroe read for it. Card no. 1 has a single pin hole at top left corner, five small pin holes at top right corner, one at bottom right and some smudging along the right blank white margin. NEAR FINE.
