Notes: These are printed on thin paper. This set contains at least two series of cards showing scenes from western movies. Serie I shows scenes from the film "Bataille au Rio Grande" ("Rio Grande," a 1950 film). Serie II shows scenes from the film "Le Cavalier du Texas" ("Fort Apache," a 1948 film). John Wayne stars as the same character (Lt. Colonel Kirby Yorke) in both films.

Since all the cards from the same series show scenes from the same film, no checklist for the individual cards is presented here.

Date info: Since the films covered were released in 1948 and 1950, I'm placing a 1950 date on this set.

Thanks to Amit Benyovits for helping with this checklist.

Serie I - Bataille au Rio Grande
Serie II - Le Cavalier du Texas
