1935 Josetti Bunten Filmbilder Set Overview
This was one of many international tobacco card sets featuring movie stars. It was produced by for Josetti Cigarettes, a German tobacco brand. The technical name for the set was Bunten Filmbilder, which, roughly translated is, ‘Colorful movie pictures.’
Cards are a little different from other ones, however. While many of those were black and white sets featuring real images, these had color pictures and a dinstinctive golden border.
As was the case in several other movie star sets, boxer Max Schmeling found his way into the issue due to his immense popularity. This set is almost entirely a non-sports release but boxing fans do have an interest in it for Schmeling’s card. Schmeling is here, featured with his wife Anny Ondra, who was an actress.
Backs of the cards have a short description of the cards as well as the mention that an album was available for them.
