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 Horne. 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.
