Star Cards - 8

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 IMDB.com 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.

Bette Davis

At this point in her career, Ms. Davis is a throw in to extend the set of cards. She was a rising star, but there's no hint in the commentary here that she'd go on to become the legend that she is.

Trivia: While Bette Davis was the star pupil at John Murray Anderson's Dramatic School in New York, another of her classmates was sent home because she was "too shy". It was pronounced that this girl would never make it as an actress. It was Lucille Ball. (source: IMDB)
