Notes: "Lichtspielhaus" is an old-fashioned German word for cinema, and literally means "play-of-light house". Albums were issued from cinemas such as "Saxinger's Lichtspielhaus" and "Tonfilm Kino Marx". Title on the front is "Unsere Filmlieblinge" ("Our Film Favourites") and there was no list of contents, with 6 blank pages. Each page has slots for 15 small, purple-tinted cards for a total of 90 cards. Unfortunately, the cards themselves are blank-backed and unnumbered, with only the name of the star on the front. Without the album they are difficult to identify. To date, 77 different cards have been seen.

Date info: As for the year of issue: Albert Paulig has a cross next to his name, and he died in 1933 and little-known actor Hans Beck-Gaden made his final film in 1934, so 1933/34 is probably a safe bet.
