Vintage German Movie Cards 1930s Black White 41 Cigarette Memorabilia

This is a set of 41 black white pre-WWII cinema cards which were distributed in packs of cigarettes prior to 1936.

These cards were wildly popular and were collected & traded by the smoking population enamored with talking cinema and glamorous stars. In 1936 the Nazis determined that the cards were a decadent waste of paper so their production ceased. As paper supplies grew scarce they were recycled into necessities such as fire starters and toilet paper. Ultimately few of these cards, like the movies they advertised, survived. They are highly collectible and have been even more so since the release of the Brad Pitt film "Inglorious Basterds".

This group features 13 different stars and their movies, and has descriptive text in German. Unfortunately I have no idea what the texts describe. Each card measures 5 1/4" by 3 1/2" and have the same geometric backing. The stars are:

Lillian Harvey #4
Wolf Albach-Retty #4
Kathe von Nagy #4
Renate Muller #4
Brigitte Helm and Jan Kiepura #4
Hans Albers #4
Willy Fritsch #4
Tony van Eyck #4
Sybille Schmitz and Conrad Veidt #4
Heinz Ruhmann #4
Otto Wallburg #1

Condition: These are in very good vintage condition-no tears or soiling. Two cards have the remnants of a heart stickers that must have been placed there by some pre-WW2 movie star groupie one card has a bit of paper loss. All have a small amount of yellowing around the border.

Sold AS IS for cash only at the time of item pick-up. No moving assistance is available so bring a buddy for larger items. Call and please leave message if we are not available.
