Notes: Checklist probably incomplete. Black photographic cards which promote films and their stars. Cards were issued in three ways:

British Trade Reference MIN-050. These are scarce cards rarely seen. More than one still exists for some films making it challenging to identify cards. The British Trade Reference also notes two cards of some film exist with no indication of how collectors can tell them apart. Two further cards featuring Wallace Beery from "The Secret Six" have also been studied which are not recorded in the index.

Date info: Cards were probably issued around 1931 as most of the films on the cards were released around then.

Thanks to Richard Minns for helping with this checklist.
