Attractive window card, trimmed to 14" x 16", advertising the 1962 Columbia film "Safe at Home," which starred William Frawley (who played Fred Mertz on "I Love Lucy," the character after whom I named my dog).  The original lobby card was 22" high, with white space at the top to print or write theater details.  This example has been trimmed to remove the white space.

Trimming aside, the piece does exhibit some even but noticeable toning, with some corner and edge wear, a few very tiny edge tears, and some mild wrinkling.  The presentation is quite strong.
