Issued as insert with what product: Magazine

Notes: It appears there were two different series of these that share the same physical characteristics. These are postcard size with Postcard backs.

One set of these, called Film Star Favourites, has been seen with the original wallet packet that they came in originally. That set contains 12 cards and is complete below. The checklist for the second set is incomplete.

Date info: The text on the cards refers to some 1935 films as being the most recent, so this set was probably issued around that time.

Thanks to Richard Minns for providing the information for this set.
