J.F.Sporting Collectibles Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Music Hall Artistes 2013 Music Hall Artistes 2013 LT24 - This is an amazing, wonderful photographic record of great names on the music hall circuit from the turn of the 20th century right through to the 1950s. Just look at this line-up: Harry Lauder, Little Titch, Harry Tate, Wee Georgie Wood, Dan Leno, George Robey, Wilf ‘I Belong to Glasgow’ Fyffe, Marie Lloyd and Vesta Tilley, to name but a few, and we finish with ‘The Cheeky Chapie’ Max Miller whose risqué jokes frequently ran foul of the censors. Excellent biographical backs bring the stage to life. Size 89 x 64mm.

J.F.Sporting Collectibles Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Silent Movie Stars 1st Series 2009 Silent Movie Stars 1st Series 2009 LT24 - Presumably encouraged by the response to their 1940/50s film star series, J F Sporting have gone back to the pre-talkie era for this set of monochrome photo portraits within a fancy oval frame. Among those whose names have stood the test of time are ‘America’s Sweetheart’ Mary Pickford, Hollywood heart-throb Rudolph Valentino, bespectacled comic actor Harold Lloyd and Charlie’s half-brother Sydney Chaplin.

J.F.Sporting Collectibles Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Silver Screen Actors 1930s (2012) Silver Screen Actors 1930s (2012) LT24 - Recalling Hollywood’s ‘golden age’, these fine hand-coloured head and shoulders photos feature some of the all-time cinema greats including Errol Flynn, Spencer Tracy, James Cagney, Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. The backs give biographical details and film successes. The Clark Gable card incorrectly states “Gone With The Wind” (1933)”. One of J.F’s earlier series (Famous Film Stars 1940/50s 2nd Series) rightly says the Civil War epic came out in 1939 – and indeed it played in London throughout the war. Size 90 x 64mm.

Marcovitch Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Beauties 1932 Beauties 1932 18 - We love these black and white pictures of beautiful women, but as they have no information on the reverse, not even the company’s name, we can’t tell you anything about them. All the cards are numbered on the left bottom corner and some of them may be different pictures of the same women. The majority are head and shoulders images and rather demure, but there are a few racier images (by 1930s standards). A nice set with cards size 66 x 35mm.

The cards are numbered on the front and give the name of the actor or actress as well as their studio, but the backs are blank. Among the well-known names are Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, John Barrymore, Bing Crosby, Marlene Dietrich, Leslie Howard, Joan Crawford, Jeanette MacDonald, King Kong star Fay Wray, Katherine Hepburn, dancer Fred Astaire, Mae West, Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo and child stars Shirley Temple and Jackie Cooper.

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.

Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film Stars and General Interest Photocards Group J 1938 Film Stars and General Interest Photocards Group J 1938 M22 - Ardath produced a number of photographic black and white series picturing general interest subjects and this Group J selection is a mixture of film stars and miscellaneous shots. Issued just before the start of WWII the planes and ships such as the Hawker “Hurricane”, Supermarine “Spitfire” (both heroes of the Battle of Britain) and H.M.S. “Rodney” (which went on to play a major role in the sinking of the “Bismarck”) and H.M.S. “Intrepid” (sunk 1943) would soon be in the thick of the fighting, but elsewhere in the set there is a shot of the newly opened Mersey Tunnel, The “Railton Special” in which John Cobb broke the land speed record in 1938, a Nairn Transport motor coach which operated between Damascus and Baghdad, the L.M.S. “Coronation Scot” and L.N.E.R “Coronation” locomotives, band leader Jack Hylton, film stars such as Sabu, Robert Taylor, Nan Grey and Gloria Blondell and amateur ice skater Megan Taylor. All in all there should be something for everyone and with good quality pictures and informative text on the back these are worthy of any collection. Cards size 80 x 55mm.

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”.

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.

Carreras Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film and Stage Beauties 1939 Film and Stage Beauties 1939 54 - Set of 54 glamour photos called Film & Stage Beauties produced by Carreras in 1939, some of which are quite racy for the period - even showing a glimpse of stocking tops and some prominent busts - and a fair number are in bathing costumes. Among the beauties flaunting their physical talents are a few Hollywood actresses such as Hedy Lamarr, Anita Louise, Merle Oberon and Sonja Henie with their studio (Paramount, Warner Bros. Or 20th Century Fox noted on the card backs), but most would appear to be stage artistes - and not the theatrical type either, judging by where they could be seen (six of them at the Hollywood Restaurant, five at Rose's Casa Manana, with others at such venues as the Paradise Restaurant and the International Casino). Many bear a credit to Murray Korman. Size 68 x 36mm

Included are well-established stars such as Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Joan Blondell, Carole Lombard, Maureen O’Sullivan, Anna Neagle and Florence Desmond. But there is also a bevy of new glamorous stars who were to become wartime pin-ups boosting forces’ morale, Olivia De Havilland, Deanna Durbin, Betty Grable and Dorothy Lamour. The film studios are named on the backs, together with an advert for a slip-in album “obtainable from all tobacconists, price one penny”. Those were the days! Size 68 x 36mm

Morris Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Captain Blood 1937 Captain Blood 1937 25 - The colour pictures are based on the 1935 pirate film which starred Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland, and the 1922 novel by Rafael Sabatini. In this tale a doctor during the reign of King James II is wrongly convicted of treason and sentenced to slavery in the West Indies. He becomes the property of Arabella with whom he is in love, but when the crew of a Spanish privateer attack Port Royal Blood he and his companions, after making sure Arabella is safe, manage to capture the ship and become pirates. After the attack Arabella is sent by her uncle to England, but three years later returns on the same ship as the Royal Emissary Lord Willoughby. By a quirk of fate Arabella and the Emissary are rescued by Captain Blood from another pirate, but in trying to return them to Port Royal they find the settlement under attack from French frigates. Blood is offered a pardon if he will defend the port and he tricks the French with false colours. In the bitter hand-to-hand battle which follows he loses his ship, but the French are defeated and Port Royal saved. He is awarded the governorship of the settlement and at last gets to marry Arabella. The cards are a mixture of vertical and horizontal pictures and the numbered backs give plenty of detail concerning the story. Size 67 x 36mm

Anonymous Tobacco Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Set 6 (Plain Back) 1935 Cinema Stars Set 6 (Plain Back) 1935 30 - This is a fine set containing colour pictures of some of Britain’s most famous stately homes with plenty of historical and architectural information on the reverse. The cards come in their own special box and are part of the Fax Pax range of ‘Knowledge in a Nutshell’ sets. Among the gems featured are Woburn Abbey the first house to be developed as a tourist attraction, Traquair House in the Scottish borders, the iconic St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, George the IV’s extravagantly over-the-top Royal Pavilion in Brighton, Powis Castle in Wales, Osborne House on the Isle of Wight designed by Prince Albert, Longleat in Wiltshire better known these days for its safari park, Knowle in Kent which is one of the largest, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire where Elizabeth I was living when she became queen, Chatsworth in Derbyshire which has the highest fountain in the world, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire where Winston Churchill was born, Blickling Hall in Norfolk once owned by the family of Anne Boleyn and Castle Howard in Yorkshire where ‘Brideshead Revisited’ was filmed. The facts on the back not only tell you about the building, but also about the family associated with them, for instance we learn that the 6th Duke of Somerset acquired Petworth House on his marriage to Elizabeth Percy, but was so proud he made his own children stand in his presence. A fascinating set with cards size 67 x 36mm. The set was also issued by Cavanders with text backs in colour.

Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film, Stage and Radio Stars 1935 Film, Stage and Radio Stars 1935 EL25 - The head and shoulders sepia photo-portraits feature many of the most popular figures of the entertainment world in the mid-1930s including great Hollywood icons such as Garbo, Dietrich, Clarke Gable, Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers, interspersed with British radio favourites like Henry Hall, Elsie and Doris Waters (Gert and Daisy), Stanley Holloway, Gracie Fields and Noel Coward. The issue date, 1935, is confirmed by reference to Leslie Howard’s card which says “aged 42 this tall Adonis is a strong swimmer, keen cricketer and polo player”. Leslie’s life was cut short in a wartime air crash. Size 98 x 64mm

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 My Favourite Part 1939 My Favourite Part 1939 48 - Issued in August 1939, just before World War II, by Gallaher in their top selling ‘Park Drive Cigarettes’ this set contains colour portraits of film stars in their favourite role and the backs give the reasons for selecting that particular role and bear a facsimile autograph. The stars include Hollywood greats such as Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Spencer Tracy, Errol Flynn and Raymond Massey. Raymond Massey picked “Things to Come” as his favourite role which by coincidence was the film on which Mitchell’s card set World of Tomorrow was based. British musical favourites such as Jessie Matthews and Gracie Fields are also included as well as newcomers like Laurence Olivier, ”wicked lady” Margaret Lockwood, Olivia de Havilland, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh who was the surprise choice for the lead in that all-time classic “Gone With the Wind” and a teenage Judy Garland whose favourite part “so far” was in “The Wizard of Oz”. We cannot recommend this set highly enough. Cards size 63 x 37mm

Among the better known are Anna May Wong, Dorothy Bouchier, Ann Dvorak and Sidney Fox and some like Anne Grey and Dorothy Bartlam appear more than twice. No doubt they would all have been well-known to cinema goers in the 1930s, but from our point of view it is a shame the backs just contain the title, details of Rothmans and the wording “reproduced from actual photographs”. That said these are very good pictures with cards size 65 x 39mm.

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Shots from Famous Films 1935 Shots from Famous Films 1935 48 - The 48 cards contain delightful colour pictures taken from films of the period showing two of the stars. Amongst the featured films are “Tarzan and his Mate” an action adventure with Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O’Sullivan, “Cleopatra” featuring Claudette Colbert and Henry Wilcoxon, musical comedy “We’re Not Dressing” with Bing Crosby and Carole Lombard, “Flying Down to Rio” with Ginger Rogers and Paul Roulien, which we are told employed over 2,000 extras, Queen Christina starring Greta Garbo, “Manhattan Melodrama” featuring Myrna Loy and Clark Gable and “Nell Gwyn” with Anna Neagle and noted stage actor Sir Cedric Hardwicke. Some of the films such as “A Cup of Kindness” and “The Barratts of Wimpole Street” appear on more than one card, but with different pictures and actors. Were Gallaher showing a personal preference or perhaps there were more than two stars! There are interesting facts related on the backs including the studio behind the production, the original author and a summary of the film story. Size 63 x 37mm

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Stars of Screen and Stage back in Green 1935 Stars of Screen and Stage back in Green 1935 48 - In recent years cinema has undergone a resurgence with bigger audiences and a succession of box office blockbusters, but admissions are never going to regain the dizzy heights of the 1930s when the silver screen reigned supreme. This set turns the clock back to 1935 when some of the greatest stars of all time were pulling in crowds of fifty million or more a week at palatial cinemas around the country. Issued with Gallaher’s ‘Park Drive Cigarettes’ these colour pictures and informative text backs allow us to get up-close and personal with favourite stars of the era. For instance we see Gary Cooper (educated in England and a newspaper cartoonist before taking up acting), George Robey (music hall’s ‘Prime Minister of Mirth’), Ronald Colman (born in Richmond and a seaside pierrot before films), Beatrice Lilley with her unique gift of humour and mimicry, Florence Desmond (no stranger to collectors because of the Carreras Film Stars series bearing her name), the Houston Sisters (Renee was in radio’s “The Petticoat Line” until the 1980s), Jack Hulbert (whose name is inseparably linked with his equally popular wife Cicely Courtneidge), Bebe Daniels who like Ginger Rogers (also in this set) made her name in ‘42nd Street’ and is remembered for her role in radio’s ‘Life With the Lyons’ with her husband Ben Lyon and comedy favourites Laurel and Hardy. Pure nostalgia with cards size 63 x 37mm. This set was also issued with a brown back.

Jolson) and Bebe Daniels (aka Mrs. Ben Lyon and much loved in the UK for her part in the 1950s radio show “Life with the Lyons”). Then there are blonde bombshells Jean Harlow, Joan Blondell and Carole Lombard, our very own Jessie Matthews the musical star later to become Mrs. Dale in “Mrs. Dale’s Diary” on radio and dear Cicely Courtneidge (who appeared at the Hippodrome in Norwich with her husband Jack Hulbert), plus that sultry Swede Greta Garbo.

Cavanders Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Set 6 1934 Cinema Stars Set 6 1934 30 - This set, known as "Set 6" comprises thirty hand-coloured pictures issued with Cavanders "Army Club" cigarettes in 1934, according to the catalogue. We suspect it was issued slightly earlier. There are clues - Vilma Banky is noted as having been voted most popular actress in 1927. Early talkies such as "The Jazz Singer"and "The Ghost Train" (1928) are mentioned. Dolores DelRio was born in 1904 and we are told she married for the second time at the age of 26 - which takes us to 1930. (Incidentally, another Dolores, Dolores Costello was married to John Barrymore). But there the date clues run out, except by omission - for instance Bebe Daniels' prominent role in "42nd Street" is not included in her list, so we're going to stick our necks out and suggest this set dates from around 1932, and certainly pre-October 1933 because no review ever appeared in Card Collectors News, which began publication that month. Strangely, Esther Ralston appears twice inthe set - at numbers 10 and 29 - both with exactly the same texts but different portraits. Why? This set leaves many questions unanswered and could provide film buffs with a lot of research opportunities! Size 67 x 36mm. The set was also issued with a plain back with in sepia
