Note: Checklist Incomplete. Most of the cards in this set have some text at the bottom indicating the set was published by the Bell Agency in Brussells, Belgium. Some do not have this text, especially the higher numbered cards.

At the top of the backs, there is usually some text about a particular movie theater. This set was apparently given out at movie theaters and can be found with many different theaters listed on the back. The following theaters have been seen listed on the backs of these cards, and there are probably more:

Kursaal
Modern

Cine Real Palace
Rialto

Van Eyck
Villette

There is various advertising in boxes in the middle of the backs.

Date info: Helen Lallo reports that Cary Grant starred in the 1940s in a Warner Brothers film, but the photo is a later photo of him than the 1940s. He starred in these Warner Brothers films: 1946 Night and Day and the next time was 1952 Room for One More. Helen says that the photo could not be Night and Day time frame. She has examples of all those publicity stills and it looks closer to the 1952 publicity photos used for Room for One more. So that dates the set to the 1950s.

Thanks to Helen Lallo and Greg Graetz for help with this checklist.
