Country of Issue: USA
Year of Issue: 1955
Color/B&W: Color
Number of Cards in Set: 18
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Cereal

Notes: Rounded corners. Unnumbered. These cards were issued with General Mills breakfast cereal. They were issued in Kix cereal boxes and the text on the box says that they were issued exclusively with Kix. All cards show M-G-M film stars.

Date info: All of the films mentioned on the cards were released in 1955 except "Green Mansions," which was not released until 1959. The "Green Mansions" card in this set shows Pier Angeli, who was originally cast as the lead in the film, but was replaced by Audrey Hepburn in the released version. Since this card was included in this set, it is apparent that at least this card was issued before the release of the film, leading me to think that these cards were issued during 1955 when all these films were released, rather than later.
