Lobby card border art

Last week, I mentioned that there were some cards I collected just for the border art.  I bought all of these for low $$, many for opening bid.

Bruce and I had the exchange that when he mentions the cool border art, it is code for the fact that the card itself is a rotting woodchuck under the porch.

I collected the following cards strictly for the borders.  They are all pre-ww2 and each has a certain charm.  Some have cool art deco designs, some show action.  I don't believe I have seen most of these films (exception is Northwest Passage).  I'm not implying that there aren't more recent films out there that have border art that sucks you in.  Perhaps some of you can reply with examples, and/or I can expand later in the thread.  However, most of those that I see relate directly to the film.  These seem to have a style of the time and mostly don't relate to the movie directly.
