Country of Issue: England
Year of Issue: Early 1930s
Number of Cards in Set: 3 sets of 48 cards
Issued as insert with what product: Magazine
Notes: This checklist includes three different sets of 48 cards each. There was an album issued called "Stars of the Silver Screen" to hold all three sets. These cards were given out to readers of various "Schoolgirl" magazines. One set was called Filmland's Favourites and was issued by Schoolgirls' Weekly magazine. Another set was called Famous Talkie Players and was issued by "Schoolgirl" magazine. The last set was called Cinema Celebrities and was issued by "Schoolgirls' Own" magazine. The cards for all three sets share the same design, with a black and white photo of the star on the front with their name underneath, a blank back, and unnumbered. If they are not pasted in the album, they are anonymous cards with no real way to identify that they are from the Schoolgirls magazines.
