In this tale a doctor during the reign of King James II is wrongly convicted of treason and sentenced to slavery in the West Indies. He becomes the property of Arabella with whom he is in love, but when the crew of a Spanish privateer attack Port Royal Blood he and his companions, after making sure Arabella is safe, manage to capture the ship and become pirates. After the attack Arabella is sent by her uncle to England, but three years later returns on the same ship as the Royal Emissary Lord Willoughby. By a quirk of fate Arabella and the Emissary are rescued by Captain Blood from another pirate, but in trying to return them to Port Royal they find the settlement under attack from French frigates. Blood is offered a pardon if he will defend the port and he tricks the French with false colours. In the bitter hand-to-hand battle which follows he loses his ship, but the French are defeated and Port Royal saved. He is awarded the governorship of the settlement and at last gets to marry Arabella. The cards are a mixture of vertical and horizontal pictures and the numbered backs give plenty of detail concerning the story. Size 67 x 36mm

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.
