Erpé cards 501-808 (French)

Details relating to the publication of Erpé cards numbered 501-808 are unknown. A visual examination of the cards finds they were produced in black-and-white and sepia tones with a narrow border on the top and sides and wider border on the bottom. Many were tinted. The stars' names are centered on the front bottom section using a cursive-like font.

The cards are dated circa 1939, with Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland dressed in costumes from the 1938 film, 'Robin Hood' (cards 764 and 774), and Norma Shearer and Tyrone Power dressed in 'Marie Antoinette' costumes (cards 654 and 799), another 1938 production.

The set is comprised primarily of French and American film stars. Additional cards marked Erpé (in a different format) exist outside the 501-808 number range.

Individual cards exist in both tinted and non-tinted format, and colors applied did not necessarily represent reality. Series 574 of Mireille Balin shows this variation in tints, with the dress and face and skin-tone changing color from card to card.
