Note: Checklist incomplete. These are small cards in the shape of stamps that were meant to be cut out of Loew's Weekly magazine, which was given out free to patrons of the Loew's Movie Theatres. Loew's issued an album with this set.

The Septemer 13, 1935 issue contains stamps numbered 21-40. The magazine states the following about the stamps: "Loew's Weekly this week reprints Star Stamps No. 21 to No. 40 in answer to hundreds of letters received from movie fans who are saving these stamps! Numbers 1 to 20 were reprinted in the issue of July 5th."

The November 20, 1936 issue contained 2 stamps on the cover and 18 more stamps inside the magazine. Later issues contained just two stamps on the cover.

Date Info: I've seen a Loew's Weekly magazine from September 1935 containing the stamps and a magazine from August 1937 still containing the stamps. A March 1938 issue does not include the stamps, so the promotion ended before that.
