Notes: Checklist probably incomplete. Stars are identified with an autograph on the front. Blank-backed. An REA auction contained unopened packs of these cards which identified them as being issued with Marble Gum, though there is no mention of Marble Gum on the cards themselves. I previously listed this set in the Strip Card section under the name Fancy Frame Strip Cards.

The Marble Gum Film Stars set and the Film Frame Strip Card set seem to be related, as both share the same pictures and identifications.

Some of the autographs are very difficult to read. Collector Bob Richardson, who helped with this checklist, reports that he has an additional four cards not listed on this checklist that he can't identify because of the tiny captions.
