Lobby Cards # 9:Torch Singer 1933

Ahh, it’s great to be back (after a month offline). Thanks for sharing these lobby card images. They are somewhat misleading, though, don’t you think? They make the sordid and saucy pre-code melodrama of a Torch Singer torn between liberty and love look quite tame and respectable.

Hi Harry, welcome back online.
Misleading indeed, and not by the lady. It's odd you should mention that, because now that I think of it, I can't remember seeing many racy lobby cards...I'm sure they exist, though. I wonder if lobby cards were toned down because the theatre owners wanted them for their lobby display? - although that wouldn't explain why there were probably some racy one sheets on display in the theatre front.
