Notes: Checklist incomplete. Unnumbered. This set was issued with identical fronts by Exona and Jolivet, both biscuit makers in France. There is no album with the Exona version of this set, but there is an album for the Jolivet version. The Jolivet album is titled "Les plus grands artistes du cinema francais et international."

Date info: The film listed on the Madeleine Robinson card was released in 1953. There is a pencilled date of 1954 on the back of one of these cards. I am placing a 1954 date on this set.

According to French collector Serge Plumecocq, Exona was a rusk factory in Corbeil-Essonnes. At one time, they produced 1,500,000 crackers/day. They closed in 1971.

Thanks to Serge Plumecocq for helping with this checklist.
