Just Cards Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Buster Keaton 2015 Buster Keaton 2015 10 - These ten cards by Just Cards feature tinted pop-art style pictures of legendary slapstick comedy star Buster Keaton. The numbered backs tell his story and what a tale it is. He was born Joseph Frank Keaton in 1895 and performed with his parents at just 3 years of age and was given the name “Buster” by Harry Houdini when he tumbled down the stairs. He started in films with “Fatty” Arbuckle and in 1920 started making his own films including ‘The Playhouse’, ‘Cops’ and ‘The General’. The advent of the talkies saw his career falter and he suffered from depression and drink problems, was married three times and filed for bankruptcy. The 1950s saw revival of his fortune when Paramount filmed his life story which led to increased interested in his earlier films. He died in 1966 at his home in California, but these cards remember him in his heyday. Size 68 x 36mm.

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 My Favourite Part 1939 My Favourite Part 1939 48 - Issued in August 1939, just before World War II, by Gallaher in their top selling ‘Park Drive Cigarettes’ this set contains colour portraits of film stars in their favourite role and the backs give the reasons for selecting that particular role and bear a facsimile autograph. The stars include Hollywood greats such as Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Spencer Tracy, Errol Flynn and Raymond Massey. Raymond Massey picked “Things to Come” as his favourite role which by coincidence was the film on which Mitchell’s card set World of Tomorrow was based. British musical favourites such as Jessie Matthews and Gracie Fields are also included as well as newcomers like Laurence Olivier, ”wicked lady” Margaret Lockwood, Olivia de Havilland, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh who was the surprise choice for the lead in that all-time classic “Gone With the Wind” and a teenage Judy Garland whose favourite part “so far” was in “The Wizard of Oz”. We cannot recommend this set highly enough. Cards size 63 x 37mm
