Cinema Stars Glossy Nd 28-54 (1934)
Lloyd Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Glossy Nd 28-54 (1934) Cinema Stars Glossy Nd 28-54 (1934) 27 - The 1930s have been called the golden age of cinema with good reason because this was the era when the talkies took to the silver screen and going to the pictures was the most popular form of mass entertainment. Naturally enough card issuers reflected this interest by producing many sets of film stars. Among them was Richard Lloyd & Sons who issued three series of glossy cards each comprising, rather strangely, twenty-seven subjects. This set is the second of these numbered 28 to 54 and issued around 1934. These are really well done with clear attractive photos backed by plenty of information about the star’s career and latest films and among those featured in this set are Marlene Dietrich, Norma Shearer (who appears on two cards with different pictures and text), Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Gary Cooper, Maurice Chevalier and Clark Gable. Nostalgia at its best for all film buffs. Cards size 68 x 36mm

Rothmans Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars 1925 Cinema Stars 1925 L25 - The talkies were a turning point in cinema history and many of the ‘silent’ stars failed to make the transition, often because of a heavy foreign accent. This set takes us back to the mid-1920s, the heyday of the silent silver screen, with twenty-five actual photographs each being “one of a fine series now being packed with Rothman’s Pall Mall Virginia Cigarettes”. Among them we find matinee idols Ivor Novello and Ramon Novarro, cowboys Tom Mix and Hoot Gibson, child actor Jackie Coogan and leading actresses such as Norma Shearer, Gloria Swanson and Bebe Daniels, who with her husband Ben Lyon was later to amuse British radio listeners during the war and after with “Life With The Lyons”. Size 80 x 62mm

Abdulla Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Set 4 (1933) Cinema Stars Set 4 (1933) 32 - This excellent set contains sepia photos of famous film stars from the 1930s who include Carole Lombard, George Raft, Jean Harlow, Tarzan star Johnnie Weissmuller, Ronald Colman, Bette Davis, heart-throb Clark Gable, Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. There is a wealth of information on the numbered card backs, for instance we are told that 5ft 5inch tall Katherine Hepburn began on the New York stage but was spotted by executives of RKO-Radio and immediately given a contract or that Clark Gable worked as a lumberjack before making it big in Hollywood. This set was also produced by United Kingdom Tobacco around the same time. A lovely set for any movie lover with cards size 67 x 37mm.
