Old Bollywood still photo set of the hit Hindi film, Jewel Thief (1967) for sale.
This is an actual surviving set of old Bollywood lobby cards of the 1967 James Bond style spy thriller that featured the evergreen superstar of Indian cinema, Dev Anand in the lead role. Vyjayantimala and Ashok Kumar also played memorable roles in the film.
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (late 1960s), this set of five Dev Anand old photo stills was printed for publicity of the film inside a cinema hall.
Lobby cards were used as pin ups on notice boards inside the foyers of cinema halls. The corners of each of these five lobby cards are punched with ring holes to allow cinemas to pin them up on notice boards with ease.
These sepia toned old Dev Anand photo stills were printed and issued to a cinema hall that actually screened the film Jewel Thief. The corners of this old Bollywood lobby card set display visible pin hole markings – tell tale signs of being pinned on the notice board of a movie theater.
The film’s soundtrack composed by S. D. Burman includes chartbusters such as “Yeh Dil Na Hota Bechara” and “Hothon Mein Aisi Baat” which are played till today.
