GODFREY PHILLIPS BRITISH BEAUTIES (54)

Issuing Company: Godfrey Phillips Ltd.
Country of Issue: England
Year of Issue: late 1910s or early 1920s
Color/B&W: Color
Number of Cards in Set: 54
Card Size: 2 5/8" x 3 3/4"
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarettes

Notes: Though there are movie stars in this set, some of the women pictured may not be movie stars.

This set was issued in three different ways, as follows:

A. Numbered from 1-54
B. Unnumbered, blank backed, Matt fronts, brown tone
C. Unnumbered, blank backed, Glossy fronts, grey-black tone

There is also a second series of these cards, numbered 55-108, along with a blank-backed, unnumbered version of the second series.

Date info: This is a difficult set to date, as many of the names in this set do not have entries in the Internet Movie Database, though some do. I also suspect that the Imdb is not complete for these early years, especially for non-American films, so these stars probably made some films in those years that are not listed on the Imdb yet. Also, this is a set of Beauties, not film stars, so there is no requirement that the stars had to be making films when this card set was issued. The overlapping time period when most of these stars were making movies was about 1917-1923, so this set was probably issued somewhere in those years.
