Film Stars Series GP2 1939
Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 M44 - The cards show black and white pictures of glamorous ladies including big names such as Betty Grable, Ann Sheridan, Joan Blondell and Olivia De Havilland. ‘Film Stars’ is a misnomer as some, like Helena Garvin, are models, whilst others are showgirls from the Windmill Theatre. The rest are not well-known although some appeared in films such as singer Shirley Ross who was in ‘Some Like It Hot’. It says something about how obscure many are that Monica Bishop is listed as ‘able to stand-in for well-known star Victoria Hopper’? and Muriel Baron is a pantomime boy. Size 80 x 56mm.
