Hoadley's Film Stars (Hoadley's on Back)

Issuing Company: Hoadley's Chocolates
Country of Issue: Australia
Year of Issue: 1924
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: At least 11
Card Size: 1 7/16" x 2 1/2"
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: 11 currently known, but there are probably more. All known cards contain the inscription "a Paramount Star" after the name on the front. There are two different Hoadley's Film Star sets, neither of which contains a set title on the cards. A distinguishing trait for these sets is that this set has the name "Hoadley's" on the backs of the cards, while the other Film Star set has the name "Hoadley's" on the fronts.

Date note: The Leatrice Joy card mentions the movie "Changing Husbands," a 1924 release, so I am dating this set at 1924, though it could have been issued a year or two later.

Thanks to Trevor Thomas for helping with this checklist.
