Who Goes There?: 1950’s Horror & Sci-Fi Movie Posters & Lobby Cards by Bruce Hershenson (book review).

March 13, 2022 | By | Reply More

Bruce Hershenson collects poster and lobby cards, although there is mention at the start of this book that he sold most of the SF and horror section off in 2001. ‘Who Goes There?: 1950’s Horror & Sci-Fi Movie Posters & Lobby Cards’ is the seventeenth book in this series and looking on-line, a few more followed and some genre films appeared in other of these books.

I have to confess I bought this book out of curiosity as much as anything. There are 6 columns indexed of how many films were covered. Some have full pages but most not. In case you wonder why the lobby cards are in colour and the films in black and white, its largely because many were hand-coloured in their day.

There is an apparent lack of text but from an archive point of view and you want to check up on posters, often different ones for the same film, and lobby cards, there’s a lot of coverage. You might not be able to afford the originals but this is a great way to get them in a reference size that allows you to see them.
