Star Cards - 10

Wow, it's been awhile, eh?

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.

(in the extended entry)


Sally Eilers was one of the busiest actresses in the early-talkie era, rising to leading lady status in the late 1920's until the early 1940's when she transitioned into character roles. She was never a major star, but maintained a steady and productive career until her retirement from the silver screen in 1951. Ms. Eilers married cowboy star Hoot Gibson in 1930, but their marraige couldn't survive the strain of her rising popularity as his declined. She passed away in 1978.
