Notes: Checklist Incomplete. These can be identified by the word "Clovis" on the front with blank backs. This may be the same set as the Clovis Film Stars (CI.-P on Front). Card number 266 in each of these sets shows the exact same picture of Greta Garbo, the only difference being the two say either "Clovis" or "CI.-P". There is also a second #266 in this set, showing Ramon Novarro.
The numbering for all of the Clovis sets seem to go from 201 to 320.
Clovis was a company from the small town of Pepinster in Belgium that made chocolate candy. The company was in business from 1920 through 1966, when a large fire burned down the factory and put them out of business.
Thanks to Richard Minns, Greg Graetz, and Bernie Feldman for help with this checklist.
