Notes: Checklist incomplete. The backs mention that a mail-in offer for an 8 x 10 movie star photo was available. If you sent in 20 cards and 10 cents in stamps, you would receive an 8 x 10 photo. These cards have also been seen with blank backs.

This set is very similar to the Loring and Columbia Paramount Series set checklisted in the American Movie Theatre Card Sets section. These two sets may in fact be the same set with the Loring and Columbia set in black and white and this set in color, though this is speculation at this point. More cards must be studied to find out if these are the same set or not.

Thanks to Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
