MOVIE STAR POSTCARD
PUBLISHERS' CHECKLISTS
Velez Prevost Pickford Talmadge Vanna Vidor


On this page, I have created listings of pre-1950 movie star postcard publishers, including Iris, Europe, Cinemagazine, Picturegoer, Beagles, Lilywhite, AN Paris etc.   The countries of origin include Germany, France, England, Italy, Sweden, and so on.

At this time, I have found around 66 different card series, although that is certainly not complete.   This does not count the many cards which have no publisher's name listed on the card, or are unnumbered.   This also does not include arcarde cards, some of which were postcards; these too were unnumbered.   I do not list any movie star cards from 1950 on.   I have generally left out the early theatre postcards, although many theatre actresses appeared in films (Bille Burke, Gladys Cooper, etc.)

Most of my lists only have a few cards on them at this time.   I will glady accept any contributions to the lists, including any additional series not listed.

I have separated these cards by country of origin.   Some of these I quessed on, so they may not be accurate.   Those series that I was unable to figure out their country of origin are in a separate grouping.   Anyone with any additional information, please e-mail me.

There are some cards who only have a studio name on the card (M.G.M., Paramount, UFA, etc.), without any additional information on their publisher.   I do not know who put these cards out, or if they really all belong to the same series (per studio name), but I have grouped them as such.
