You are offerding on a single antique game card that depicts a movie star from the silent movie era.It dates from 1918-1923.
This card depicts House Peters (much later known as RObert House Peters to differentiate him from his son, also an actor.
Robert House Peters, Sr. (12 March 1880 – 7 December 1967) was a British-born American silent film actor, known to moviegoers of the era as "The Star of a Thousand Emotions." Born in Bristol, England, Peters began his career on a high note, playing the handsome leading man in The Bishop's Carriage (1913), co-starring Mary Pickford. While The Bishop's Carriage was filmed in an East Coast studio, Peters was in Los Angeles by 1914, becoming one of the first screen stars to permanently settle there. Although he stated publicly that he preferred playing villains, Peters, curly haired and pleasantly dimpled, was from the outset typecast as the romantic hero. Peters lifts Beatriz Michelena onto his horse in 1914's Salomy Jane. After enjoying his greatest success as the good-bad hero of The Girl of the Golden West (1915), Peters found his career at the peak of the early 1920s. He signed with Universal Studios for six pictures in 1924, hoping for a comeback. The results, however, were mostly mediocre and he was soon demoted to supporting roles. Retired after 1928's Rose Marie, Peters returned for a guest appearance in The Old West, a 1952 Gene Autry film that also featured his son, House Peters, Jr.
The back is a pretty playing card design with a a four-horse Roman chariot race.
The card size is approximately2.5 x 3.4inches (63 x 88cm). It has cut rounded corners. It shows little wear, andis clean and bright. See scan for condition.
