Players Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Players Past and Present 1916 Players Past and Present 1916 25 - This is a lovely set which contains colour pictures of actors and actresses in their best known role so for example we see Sir Henry Irving, who had died in 1905, in his role as Mephistopheles in ‘Faust’, Sir Herbert Tree as Svengali in ‘Trilby, Gertrude Elliott as Peggy in ‘Mice and Men’, Gladys Cooper who appeared in ‘My Lady’s Dress’ in 1914, legendary actress Ellen Terry as Marguerite in ‘Faust’ and Gerald du Maurier who is depicted as gentleman-burgler Raffles. As well as appearing in this set Gerald has the distinction of having a brand of cigarettes named after him. He was paid for the use of his name, but although a keen smoker he never actually smoked the Du Maurier brand himself! The numbered backs are full of information and enable us to paint a picture of life on the stage at the turn of the century. These great-value cards are size 68 x 36mm.
