Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Who Is This? (Film Stars) 1936 Who Is This? (Film Stars) 1936 50 - Ardath’s Who Is This? dating from 1936. The set’s unique feature is in showing only part of the face, with a hint below as to the personality’s identity – for Ginger Rogers for example it is “who is fascinating from head to dancing feet?” It really is a who’s who of the Hollywood elite of the time and includes Astaire, Dietrich, Garbo, Harlow, Hepburn, Clark Gable, Gracie Fields, Norma Shearer, Leslie Howard and many more – all with biographies through to their latest film appearances on the backs. A real treat from the golden age of cinema. Size 68 x 36mm
