Dolcificio Lombardo Film Stars

Issuing Company: Dolcificio Lombardo, Milano, Italy
Country of Issue: Italy
Year of Issue: Early 1950s
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 5/16" x 2"
Issued as insert with what product:

Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Unnumbered. Multiple back designs seen. Two of the backs have text above "Dolcificio Lombardo," one in black ink and one in red. Another back is in black ink with no text above "Dolcificio Lombardo." All three of those backs show the L in Lombardo extending upwards to the top of the D in Dolcificio. There is another back with the L in Lombardo on its own line. There are also some differences in the front text font. It is possible that these were issued in more than one different sets, but they are all being checklisted together here for now.

An interesting observation on these cards is that there was apparently some censorship going on with updated versions of some of these cards. There are many cards of actresses showing bare shoulders especially which are covered up by fake clothing or are zoomed in to cut out the bare shoulders in later updated cards.

This is one of those difficult sets to checklist because there are no numbers and multiple poses of many of the stars. Because of this, I am including a picture checklist with this set. Click on the small picture above to view the picture checklist.

Date info: The first listing for Dorothy Tutin in the Imdb is for 1952, dating this set to sometime after that. The stars in this set are mostly from the early 1950s, so probably not much later than that, maybe sometime between 1952 and 1954.

Thanks to Amit Benyovits for help with this checklist.
