Notes: The backs state that there are 5 cards from each of 24 different films, for a total of 120 cards in the set. For the card numbering, each film had a letter assigned to it, followed by a dash, then a number 1 to 5. All letters were used except X and Z. For a particular letter, the text is exactly the same for every card numbered 1-5 except for letter K. Letter K was from a film where the star was walking around film studios in Hollywood, so the text is different for every card, as the star encounters different movie stars.

The backs also note that customers were able to mail in for a large, hand-colored picture of the star of a particular movie. I haven't seen one of these large pictures. If anyone has one, email me a scan so it can be included on the site for all to see.

Date info: All of the movies on these cards were released in 1922 or 1923, so I am placing a 1923 date on this set.
