Notes: Blank-backed. The information for this checklist was taken from the album that was issued with the set. The album was printed by the African Consolidated Theatre Company Publicity Dept. in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In the Cameric Cigarette Card Club "Notes and News" magazine for April 1953, collector A. Yates from South Africa wrote that this was new set and the cards were being given away to children at movie theatres in South Africa. Yates reported that "to see the children at the matinees reminds me of days gone by, when "swopping" was the order of the day."

Date info: The Cameric Cigarette Card Club "Notes and News" magazine for April 1953 has a mention of this set as a new issue, so it was issued in 1953 or possibly late 1952. I'm placing a date of 1953 on the set.
