5 RECORD SET BY FAMOUS RECORD CO.

5 RECORD SET BY FAMOUS RECORD CO.

This rare and beautiful set was manufactured by RCA Victor for this short lived company. No one I have spoke to has ever seen any other products by them. These records feature the stars of the day Luise Rainer, Ilka Chase, Franchot Tone, John Barrymore and Joe E Brown promoting current projects. I acquired one of these records on a Sunday morning and wondered if I would ever be able to complete the set. I found the other four later that day. The inferior quality of the sound leads me to believe that like children of this period, these records were meant to be seen and not heard.
Stiff paper with embossed sound sheet over the picture side with clear protective layer over the back. 78 rpm, 1936.
