Anglas Film Stars

Issuing Company: Anglas
Country of Issue: Germany (Danzig)
Year of Issue: 1932-1934
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: Three series of 84 cards each
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolate Cocoa

Notes: Checklist incomplete. No albums were issued. There was no official title for this set on the cards, but the backs state "Diese Filmschauspieler-Serie enthalt 84 Bilder", which translates as: "This Film Star Series contains 84 cards", so a logical title would be "Film Stars" or "Film Star Series".

There are three series of these cards as follows:

Cards from the first two series are from "Ross Verlag".

Cards from the second series were also used for the Sphinx Cinema Stars set that was issued many years later in 1946, after World War II.

Date Info: Research shows that this company was only in Danzig for a couple of years - their only other series dates from 1931 and is a set of 100 flags and nationalities. All Anglas cards are rare. Some of the pictures from the second series of Anglas cards can be dated to 1933 and 1934, so that series was probably issued in about 1934.
