These photos were once part of the personal collection of James Card, the first curator of film at the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography.

They are "working" photographs -- those actually put into use by studios in movie magazines, fan mail, and theaters. While we value condition and careful storage, we also appreciate the magic and authenticity of stamps, notes, crop marks, etc. Yep, a little piece of entertainment history.

The description of each photo contains the actor name, the photographer (where known), the relevant studio or magazine client (where known), the year taken, size, and a note reflecting condition and markings on the back (such as studio stamps, photographer stamps or publicity blurbs).
