Karasi Film-Serien

Issuing Company: Karasi
Country of Issue: Germany (Hanover)
Year of Issue: 1932
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 72
Card Size: 1 9/16" x 2 3/8"
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarettes

Notes: Album issued with the title "Karasi's Film-Serien", although on the back of the cards it states "Karasi's erstklassige Film-Serien" ("erstklassig" = "first-class"). Although only 72 cards came out, cards are numbered from 1-74 - they forgot numbers 46 and 73. Album list of contents also omits the two numbers, and the album is complete without the two numbers, and without gaps. Card order in the album itself is chaotic, with spaces for specific cards in non-chronological order and cards are only glued down on one side of the page. Cards are identical to a mix of Kosmos "Film-Photos Serie 1" and Kosmos Film-Photos Serie 2". For example, the Chaplin and Wong cards are from Album 1, the Tauber and Bennett cards from album 2. Cards are also identical to Przedecki-Sultan "Film-Photos Folge A", but in a different numerical order. All card backs are identical.

Date info: Card number 69 shows the stars Gustl Stark-Gstattenbauer, Wolf Albach-Retty and Renate Muller. They only made one film together - "Madchen zum Heiraten", which came out in 1932.
