Film Funnies (no names)
   Gum Inc. - 1935
Film Funnies (with names)
   Gum Inc. - 1935

Notes: The main release featired caricatures of unnamed movie stars. The variants with 
names may not have been released to the public, because of then-current concern over 
trademarking of actor images versus exclusions for works of parody. Visually, it is clear 
that the "with names" version was produced first and names were edited out for the 
no-names release. Original shows © 1935 while the edited cards are marked © Hal 

Cards show a color illustration with a question, with multiple-choice answers on card 
backs. Completing all 24 correctly would entitle the holder to a mail-in prize contest. 
American Card Catalog references are R48-1 (no names) and R48-2 (with names). Scans 
are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
