Neill Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 George Formby 50th Anniversary Issue 2011 George Formby 50th Anniversary Issue 2011 10 - These black and white head and shoulders artist's portraits of George Formby invariably sporting a toothy smile, pay tribute to one of Britain's most popular entertainers of the 20th century, marking the 50th anniversary of his death on 6th March 1961. The backs tell the remarkable story of the Lancastrian who rose to fame as a banjo/ukelele playing comedian, star of stage, radio, cinema and television, who brought joy to audiences over a period of almost four decades, including a stint with ENSA entertaining front-line troops at Monty's request in World War II. Numerous hit recordings and popular films made him the highest-earning British artiste, but his life was cut short by a fatal heart attack at the age of 56. However, as these cards say, "Thanks to CDs and DVDs, George's brand of cheeky humour lives on for fans young and old alike." Size 68 x 36mm.

Tribute Collectables Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 John Wayne A Tribute to The Duke 2010 John Wayne A Tribute to The Duke 2010 10 - Tribute Collectable cards are notable particularly for the comprehensive biographies on the card backs. Here, we learn John Wayne acquired the nickname ”Duke” when as a child he was inseparable from the family’s huge Airedale “Little Duke”. After a summer job in a studio prop room he began getting small parts in low-budget Westerns, but his career really took off when he featured in John Ford’s “Stagecoach” in 1939. One starring role followed another through the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, culminating with a Best Actor Oscar for “True Grit”. The black and white photos on these cards show him in a variety of familiar roles. Size 68 x 36mm.

In the 1960s she concentrated on stage and TV appearances including 'The Judy Garland Show' in which her daughters from her first marriage, Lorna and Liza Minnelli, regularly appeared. Judy's life story is told on the backs of these black and white photo cards. Size 68 x 36mm.
