I have recently come upon a variation in this game which
account for the the early 1929 copyright date. The checklist and images
in the right column are from the more familiar version of the game, a version
which appears to have been issued sometime in the early 1930's, probably
sometime before 1934 or so. The checklist and cards depicted in the left
column seem to come from an earlier version of the game and include many
silent stars who were probably transitioning to talkies at the time the game
was issued. These are more likely the 1929 edition cards, though there
are several prominent stars missing, most notably those pictured on the game
box who are no where to be found: Charlie Chaplin, Clara Bow, etc. The
discovery of this earlier set has led me to be optimistic that there may be
yet another edition of the game which includes these earlier stars. Then
again, possibly not.
About the cards in general: The CALLING Cards are matched to the small photos on the
back of each
KEENO Card. Each CALLING Card is
similar to a playing card and measures 2-5/16 X 3/5/16 inches with rounded
corners. Every CALLING Card has the same design on back. This
design is shown above at the right.
