1960s lobby cards for Batman, A Hard Day’s Night, and more star at Meadow Lane Feb. 18

1966 Batman movie poster lobby card #4, featuring the Batboat, estimated at $100-$200 at Meadow Lane.

GLENVIEW, Ill. — A star-studded collection of movie memorabilia, including lobby cards and one-sheets, take the spotlight at Meadow Lane Auctions as part of its 100-lot Vinyl, Trading Cards, Antiques, Cels, Toys sale on Sunday, February 18. The catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

It’s difficult for contemporary fans of pop culture to grasp how revolutionary and popular Batman was when it debuted on ABC stations nationwide in 1966. Starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the Dynamic Duo, the series’ campy style and jarring day-glo color palette was previously unheard of on American television. Storylines were broken into two parts, allowing for cliffhangers for the twice-weekly program.

The show was such a hit that 20th Century Fox, which produced the program for ABC, greenlit a filmed version of the series, reprising most of the original characters and villians for the big screen. The sale includes a nearly complete set of 1966 Batman lobby cards (the eighth, the title card, is not included). The card featuring the rarely seen Batboat (created for the film by boat builder Glastron) is a fan favorite; its only appearance on the television show was through the use of movie outtakes, so expensive was it to film on water. The card is estimated at $100-$200.

The Beatles were more than just musical icons of the 1960s, they were a merchandising juggernaut. Spurred by their manager Brian Epstein, the band licensed their name and likenesses to a dizzying array of products, from Beatle wigs and board games to trading cards and even an Australian-produced ABC Saturday morning cartoon show. But it was the movie contract signed with United Artists that would help make the Beatles stars of the silver screen. Their first release, 1964’s A Hard Day’s Night, is today considered a classic and was an instant smash hit, even earning two Academy Award nominations. The sale includes a single A Hard Day’s Night lobby card from the eight-piece set, featuring the band peering out at screaming fans from a passenger train window. It carries an estimate of $100-$200.

A Hard Day’s Night director Richard Lester tapped Beatle guitarist John Lennon for his adaptation of the hit novel How I Won The War. The film was shot in 1966 and as part of his role, Lennon wore circular granny glasses that would later become his trademark. A single lobby card from the film depicts John Lennon as Musketeer Gripweed and Michael Crawford as Lieutenant Earnest Goodbody peering down their rifles during a battle sequence. It is estimated at $100-$200.

Though it seems almost ridiculous to the contemporary eye, the Supermarionation of Gerry Anderson reached a fever pitch with the 1965 British television debut of Thunderbirds. Set in a future world with marionettes, voice actors, and incredible special effects using miniatures, the series is still viewed and enjoyed nearly 60 years after its debut. The sale has a number of Thunderbirds lots, all drawn from the motion picture releases made concurrent to the series. The star lot is the one-sheet from 1966’s Thunderbirds Are Go, estimated at $100-$200.

DETROIT — More than 1,000 lots of fine jewelry, art and collectibles will appear in DuMouchelles’ December sale, being held Thursday, December 14 and Friday, December 15. The catalogs are now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

One of the sale’s star lots is a beautiful and ingenious ladies’ watch by Perret Geneve. Crafted with diamonds and 14K gold, the watch mechanism itself can be detached from the band, or by pressing a button, flip open to reveal a hidden miniature portrait within. The watch is estimated at $15,000-$25,000.

Created in 1970 as a form of ‘wedding present’ to his new wife, Yoko Ono, John Lennon compiled a collection of ‘erotic’ illustrations of his own creation and packaged them as Bag One in a satchel. They were sold through select galleries and signed and numbered by the former Beatle. DuMouchelles has one of these collections, apparently incomplete (only three of the original lithos remain), with an estimate of $4,000-$6,000.

Martime artist James Clary (1939-2018) created a major body of work during his lengthy career, with an enduring love of ships from all eras. In US-1 Racing Boat, he captures the thrill of speedboat racing, with the location of the work identified as St. Clair River near the Blue Water Bridge connecting Port Huron, Michigan and Sarnia, Ontario. The oil on canvas board measures 14 by 18in and is estimated at $3,000-$4,000.

French Fauvist painter Achille-Émile Othon Friesz (1879-1949) was born in Le Havre but would relocate to Paris, where he lived the majority of his life. His oil on canvas Festive Scene at a French Park measures 21.5 by 25.5in and bears all the striking use of color and realism that defines Fauvism. The painting is estimated at $2,000-$4,000.
