This set shows a card for Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. from his first credited movie role. Fairbanks was 13 years old when the movie was released. The card says the movie title is "Stepping Out," while the movie was actually released as "Stephen Steps Out."
These cards can be identified by the following characteristics:
- They have a brown tone
- They are borderless
- A small white rectangle at one of the bottom corners of the card contains the name of the movie star, the name of one of his movies, and the movie studio.
- They have postcard backs
