Description

Here’s a lovely vintage photo postcard featuring Judy Garland as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz movie, published in England. Apparently with permission by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), which is marked at the bottom front. This is Picturegoer series #1370, “This is a real photograph” on the back. I did a little research and found that Picturegoer published movie star cards starting in 1921. The main series ran 1921-1939 and reached card #1460, so presumably this card (#1370) dates from 1938-1939, which would coincide with the release of the movie in 1939. A wartime/1940s series was marked W and the final series through 1960 was marked D, and these card has neither of these marks. So it seems to be an original card from ~1939, and the first I have seen or can find. In very good unused condition, with age toning on the back.
