Each page contains spaces for 25 cards for a particular subject, with the first and last page devoted to the movie stars.

The cards in this set are poor quality paper photos which can be black, red, or green.

Date info: There was a contest associated with this set called "grand concours des vedettes" (great contest of the stars). In the contest rules, the contest began on October 1, 1951 and ended on December 31, 1952. Therefore, the cards must have begun in late 1951 and continued through 1952.
