This set is very similar to the Loring and Columbia Paramount Series set checklisted in the American Movie Theatre Card Sets section. These two sets may in fact be the same set with the Loring and Columbia set in black and white and this set in color, though this is speculation at this point. More cards must be studied to find out if these are the same set or not.
