Notes: Unnumbered. This set was issued with different backs for England and for Australia. The British card backs have an adhesive surface so they can be easily pasted into a special album that was issued with this set. The backs for the Australia-New Zealand version mentions that these cards were issued without the adhesive on the back because it would be impossible to send gummed-back cards to Australia and New Zealand.

A special album was issued for this set. It is unknown whether there was a separate British and Australia-New Zealand album or whether the same album was used for both places.

The British album shows a list of movie stars on the back cover. The list on the back cover is not a checklist of the set, but is rather a list of some of the stars featured regularly in Film Fun magazine and Kinema Comic magazine, another publication by Amalgamated Press.
