Film Stars (1934)

Film Stars 2nd Series (1934)

Film Stars (Large) (1934)

Film Stars 3rd Series (1938)


Players cigarettes were late adopters to the film star theme and only produced a few cigarette card sets on this subject.

This is unfortunate for the collector of this theme (or not depending on your bank balance I guess).

However the cigarette cards they did produce were top drawer and they take up the story of film stars where Wills left.

Film Stars A series (1924) and Film Stars 2nd series (1934) are adhesive backed cards, the bane of card collectors years ago and still if not stored correctly can be a problem nowadays.  Fortunately I sell all my cigarette cards housed in plastic sleeves so these issues no longer cause the problems they once did, at least here.

The third series takes a departure in artistic style from series one and two.

The large format cards are a treat and a pretty radical departure in terms of style with the silver screen effect they have given these wonderful cards.
