Number of Cards in Set: 104
Card Size: 2 5/8" x 3 3/4"

Notes: There is no mention of the issuing company on the cards, but there is a small credit on the bottom right of the backs that says "Ufa-Film-Foto".

German card collector Nick Bolton shares the following about this set. Cards were originally issued by Carl Schutt (vending machines, Hamburg), but due to the illness of the owner, were then issued by Erich Rudat, another vending machine company also located in Hamburg. I have the original correspondence between an avid collector and the companies involved, which dates from July through to September 1960, where the illness and the handover are documented.

This set features mostly film stars, but also includes several German TV stars. There is no company name mentioned on the back, and no albums were issued. Backs are in 3 languages - German, French and Italian and there is a facsimile autograph on the front.

Collector Chris Hammond points out that card #57 in this set is supposed to be a card for Jayne Mansfield, but the photo shows Diana Dors instead.

There is another set of black and white film star cards with backs that say "Ufa-Film-Foto" that were issued by UFA.

Date info: The most recent films I've seen mentioned on the card backs were from 1959. Collector Nick Bolton's correspondence between the company that issued the cards (Carl Schutt) and a collector that was trying to complete the set dates the set to 1960.
