Notes: For many years, collectors in Germany thought there were two separate film series with the titles "Kunst aus dem Leben fur das Leben" (Art from Life for Life) and "Filmkunstler" (Film Artists). They are in fact the same series, with the former being the title of the album, and the latter the title found on the back of the cards. Six series x 10 cards were issued, for a total of 60 cards. The album is very scarce.
