Star Cards - 2

Someone was kind enough to scan and post a whole heap of Players Cigarette cards. This particular set of 85 cards is of Actresses, and were released during the late 1930's (from clues like "her latest film was...").

I'll post one of these every once in a while, with a couple of simple links to or a bio if I can find one. You might be surpirsed at some of the familiar names you'll see. The category is "Star Cards" (over on the right column), and you can click there at any time to see all that I've posted. Hope you enjoy.

Joan Bennett

Joan Bennett had a long career in film and television (60+ years!), including a lead role in the original Dark Shadows.

The card mentions one of her early roles opposite Ronald Colman in Bulldog Drummond, which is a pleasant surprise because I've recently been reacquainting myself with this early action mystery series (Ray Milland also took a turn as Drummond, as did John Howard).

Here's a nice Joan Bennett bio.
