Notes: Checklist incomplete. Blank-backed. These cards were isued in different groups. The first group says "Set of 15." Then there are more cards with higher numbers that don't have any series name listed on the cards. Then there are cards that say 5th Series and 6th Series that don't have any numbers.

For the Australian version of these cards, it appears that in the first group "Set of 15" cards, number 1 and number 11 are the identical card of Constance Cummings.

Cliff Aliperti reports that this set was also issued in New Zealand with "Lever Brothers (N.Z.) Limited" at the bottom left. At least the first set of 15 were issued in New Zealand. In the New Zealand version, card #1 shows Mary Astor. David Mendoza from New Zealand reports that the New Zealand versions of the cards extend at least up to number 28 Marion Nixon, and that there is also a New Zealand version of the 5th series.

Thanks to Kathy Heggemeier, Eric Panther, Michael Tooher, Cliff Aliperti, and David Mendoza for help with this checklist.
