When Thief Meets Thief (1937)
Color gloss lobby cards were hand-tinted photo stills printed on glossy, 11 × 14” card stock paper. They were produced for special productions and usually in limited numbers.
In this film directed by Raoul Walsh (1887–1980), two cat burglars and adversaries, Ricky Morgan (Douglas Fairbanks Jr. 1909–2000) and Jim Dial (Alan Hale, 1919–1990), are unaware they are in love with the same woman, Glory Fane (Valerie Hobson, 1917–1998). When Jim Dial dies, Glory Fane is accused of plotting his murder and Ricky Morgan takes the rap in order to protect her. In the end Jim Dial’s death is ruled a suicide and both Ricky and Glory are set free to continue their romance.
