The 1932 movie "Sky Devils" is mentioned on the Dvorak card, dating this set to 1932 at the earliest. "The Silver Lining" was also a 1932 release. I am using this as the issue date for now - if more date info comes to light later, I will update this.

The stars appear to be grouped by studio. This set includes baseball star Babe Ruth as a movie actor and the last card shows a comic image from Aesop's Sound Fables with one of the cartoon characters holding a Drake's Cake on a plate.
