About the 1935 Gallaher Shots from Famous Films Tobacco Cards
Shots from Famous Films set of 48.
Issued 1935 by Gallaher, Ltd. out of London.
Each card measures approximately 1-1/2" X 2-1/2 inches.
One of several Gallaher movie and movie star sets of the period. Others are linked at the bottom of this page.
Movie scenes on front with film title. Typically, though not exclusively, picturing screen pairings. Descriptive text on back names the stars pictured on front.
There is one variation. Card #14 picturing Claudette Colbert and Henry Wilcoxon in Cleopatra correctly identifies Wilcoxon as Mark Antony on one version of the card and incorrectly states he is Warren William as Caesar on another version.
This set is quite common and so there is no great difference in value between the variations, each of which is shown below and again, further down the page, in the complete gallery.
The key cards in the set include the Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan card as well as those picturing Greta Garbo, Myrna Loy and William Powell, Jean Harlow with Franchot Tone, Clark Gable with Myrna Loy and Gable with Joan Crawford.
Again, as this is a rather common set even those cards will be quite affordable for collectors of any budget.
