Number of Cards in Set: 477 (95 film stars)
Card Size: 2 9/16" x 3 9/16" (6.5 x 9.5)
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarette Papers/Tubes

Notes: Abadie cigarette papers/tubes issued a huge album in 1936 which covered the history of smoking. There are 7 sections, and within section F (the largest part) there are a number of film stars (mainly women with ciggie in hand). The cards feature color artwork based on actual photos. There's a card of Humphrey Bogart from 1936, which is really early, certainly in Austria/Germany, as well as Chaplin with Jackie Coogan as an adult. This is a very odd set, because in between the film stars you've got images of Japanese and Chinese people smoking, or of Japan's tallest man (F164) or an Australian creating fire with sticks (F171). The backs are also strange. Most have no information whatsoever, but then suddenly there is a card with a flood of information on what they are wearing, or even occasionally their latest movie. Only the movie stars are listed in the checklist below. When a movie title appears on the back, it is mentioned in the checklist below.

Thanks to Nick Bolton for help with this checklist.
