This is a lot of 6 (six) vintage original U. S. lobby cards from the classic Hammer horror film, THE MAN WHO COULD CHEAT DEATH, released in 1959 and directed by Terence Fisher (the film was distributed in the U. S. by Paramount Pictures). A centenarian artist and scientist ( Anton Drifting) in 1890 Paris maintains his youth ad health by periodically replacing a gland with that of a living person. Offered here are scene cards #2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. Each card features a yellow-tinted image with the film's credits against a bright yellow background. These American lobby cards were used in Canada and each one bears a Canadian censor stamp in the top right corner within the image area. The first 4 cards are in very fine- condition with only slight wear on the corners and a small curl along the right border so it does not lay perfectly flat at that area. Card #7 is in near-fine condition and has the same condition issues as well as a 2-in. and a 2.5-in. horizontal crease in the bottom border that just barely touches the image area. Card #8 is also in near-fine condition and has almost the same condition issues as #7 but the second crease in the bottom border is 3-in. in length and slightly more pronounced. Anton Diffring was the second choice for the role of Georges Bonnet, after Peter Cushing turned it down shortly before filming began. When Cushing claimed illness after breaking his oral commitment, the studio threatened legal action against its biggest star but didn't follow through. Hazel Court played the Anton Diffring sculpting scene totally nude in the European version but not so in the British and North American versions.
