1938 British Front of House Cards

What were referred to as Lobby Cards in the US were called Front of House Cards in the UK. These stunning 8" x 10" British posters from the 1938 general release of Snow White are slightly smaller and show completely different images than the American versions. The art is once again taken from the work of our man Gustaf Tenggren. His drawings are featured on all five cards.

  1. These are really pretty. I particularly like how Snow White is slightly more angular than usual; she wears the look well.

  2. Yes, these are some of my favorite SW images. Tenggren's Old World storybook style is quite eye-catching.
