Number of Cards in Set: 32 (unnumbered)

The fronts of these cards are identical to Lea Film Stars 1st Series cards. The Lea set was issued earlier than this set and contained 36 cards. Cards in the Lea set that are missing from this set include Charles Farrell, Maurice Chevalier, Kay Francis, and Joan Crawford.
The Jean Harlow card is very scarce and was probably pulled from distribution due to Harlow's untimely death in 1937. The Carole Lombard card is also extremely rare, even more so than the Harlow card.
Thanks to Richard Minns for providing many of the names for this checklist.
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.
Jean Harlow (card very rare, issued in limited numbers, presumably due to Harlow’s death in 1937)
