About

An international style US lobby card for Woody Allen's 1979 romantic comedy "Manhattan," starring co-writer and director Allen as a twice-divorced middle-aged comedy writer dating a high-school girl (Mariel Hemingway) after his wife (Meryl Streep) leaves him for a woman, who then falls in love with his best friend's mistress (Diane Keaton). Shot in lustrous black and white with a Gershwin soundtrack, the movie was Allen's love letter to New York City. The film’s most memorable image is Woody Allen and Diane Keaton sitting on a bench at dawn on the banks of the East River, silhouetted against the backdrop of Queensboro bridge. Although used on the US One Sheet and British Quad posters, the scene was not featured in the US Lobby Card set. However, the Classic image was chosen for the first card in the "international style" Lobby Card set, which was printed in the United States for use at theatres with Spanish speaking audiences, making this a rare and sought after card. Lobby Cards were designed for display in a cinema lobby to lure the movie-going public. Typically released in sets of 8, each card depicted a different scene from the film.
