    Description

    1939 GALLAHER LTD. "MY FAVOURITE PART" COMPLETE SET. These tobacco inserts appeared in Great Britain in 1939. It was sponsored by Gallaher Ltd. and its cards measure about 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". The central theme of the issue is a testimonial by its celebrities expressing their "favourite part." The stars featured in this 48-card creation are about evenly divided, English and American. Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh and Olivia DeHavilland (Melanie) are all included in "My Favourite Part," and none of them say a word about "Gone With the Wind," which debuted in December of 1939. However, Paul Muni revels in his title role in "The Story of Louis Pasteur," while Judy Garland’s ‘favourite’ was "The Wizard of Oz" -- both 1939 blockbusters. Other notables included are Errol Flynn, Spencer Tracy, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Laurence Olivier and Bette Davis. The complete set is offered here, and it is primarily EX/MT with a few ranging to EX.
