Notes: Checklist incomplete. Unnumbered. These cards were issued by movie theatres in Australia. Advertising for many different theatres can be found on the backs.

Some of the backs mention 20 cards in the set, but only 19 have been reported. These are seldom seen cards, so it is possible that one of the stars in the checklist may have two different poses to get the checklist to 20.

These were issued by many different movie theatres. Here is a list of theatres seen on the backs of these cards (more are possible):
