A guaranteed original and framed '11x14' title lobby card from 1991 for Joe Johnstone's super-hero retro-sci-fi adventure "The Rocketeer", based on the Pacific Comics character created by Dave Stevens.
With the original comic-books inspired by the Commander Cody and King of the Rocket Men cinema serials of the 1940's and 1950's, the movie sees stunt pilot 'Cliff Secord' stumble across a mysterious jet-pack in 1930's Los Angeles. Billy Campbell stars as the eponymous hero, alongside Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, Terry O'Quinn, Paul Sorvino, Timothy Dalton and Ed Lauter.
Developed by Disney Studios and therefore perhaps perceived as a 'movie for kids', the film did not perform spectacularly on release, despite considerable critical acclaim. It has since developed a strong cult following and calls for a sequel have persisted. In 2016, Disney confirmed that a reboot entitled The Rocketeers was now in development.
This wonderful art-deco lobby card is a great example of a 'title' lobby card. That is, a card that carries the key-art used on the poster. The superb art bears some resemblance to Moscow's 42 metre statue of astronaut Yuri Gagarin. The artist is John Mattos, who was apparently told "keep it simple", "they'll never use any of this anyway"! Pieces bearing the art have become highly collectible and this is a hard one to track down.
It is in superb condition and has been framed by us in solid black ayous wood with an iced white mount, protective barrier board and acrylic glazing with high UV resistance. As our photos show it will look fantastic on the wall of any fan!
Note: This lobby card is priced framed. Photos showing 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
